My experience with Denise was and still is delightful and fulfilling! I am a gardener, but new to this area, and unfamiliar with some local gardening techniques and plant choices, so I hired Denise to make a plan for me. She spent a lot of time talking to me and hearing my definite opinions of plants and style. It was really hard turning over the design to someone else when I have always done my own. And yet, the design plan Denise created for me is me ! I love the plant selection and have already had the design come to life in the yard and love to walk around and look at everything. Not only does she create large design plans to work off of, she also creates a binder with all the information on each plant in the design that you can use for the life of the plant. Living with my landscape design created by Denise will be admired by and enjoyed by me as long as I am in this house and from the comments I have received from my neighbors, they too are happy with the view!
