Le jardinet
2 Reviews
Le jardinet was founded in 2006 as a custom container garden design service, quickly gaining national recognition as my designs were featured in publications including Fine Gardening, Garden Design online, This Old House, Sunset Magazine blog and Better Homes and Gardens titles.

Gardens evolve and so do our lives and so with the success of my award winning book Fine Foliage I found myself traveling and speaking more frequently so have shifted my focus full time to landscape design, specializing in small spaces and serving the Greater Seattle area. These demand the same attention to detail and level of artistry that Le jardinet has become known for but I now apply those skills to create elegant and functional outdoor living spaces to suit your lifestyle. I also offer garden consultations to help troubleshoot existing problems or get you started on a new project.

For those who would still appreciate professional design assistance with their containers I would love to work with you either through my Personal Container Coach service or one of my many workshops held here at our home in Duvall, WA.

My aim as always is to combine my extensive horticultural knowledge and creativity to bring you designs that will exceed your expectations.

PLEASE NOTE; for descriptions and photos of my designs please refer primarily to my website. The Houzz category 'projects' can be misleading. Although many of the landscape and container designs are my work not all are - some are my photographs of other peoples work which have been used in a writing project for Houzz.

Commented: how do they do in direct sunlight Depends on the genus/species and climate. For example the above would be fine in full sun in Seattle but need some protection in San Diego. Other succulents prefer partial shade even in Seattle e.g. S...
