Lauren has been an absolute pleasure to work with! She always leaves plenty of time when meeting with us so we never feel rushed or pushed aside and her knowledge about the plants and climate helped us make thoughtful choices that align with our life, style and goals. She responds to emails and communication promptly and very clearly answers all of our questions. She listened well to what we were looking for and gave us two amazing designs that we ended up combining to create the garden oasis we’ve been hoping for. She even worked well within the requirements of our HOA and helped us ensure we met the proper standards for our neighborhood. We’ve enjoyed working with Lauren and highly recommend her!

Lauren is everything you would want in a landscape designer! She is knowledgeable and accommodating, focused on a design that meets the needs/vision of the homeowner while providing guidance for the best outcome long term. We never felt rushed or that our input/ideas weren’t valued. Her drawings are easy to read, yet amazingly detailed. She is invested in the best possible outcome. I highly recommend Lauren for your landscape design!

Lauren was amazing! She was quick to respond and complete our plan, she was professional and listened to our preferences and concerns with real interest and used that information to craft a beautiful and functional landscape design to fit our specific needs and desires. I cannot recommend her highly enough. You’ll be so happy with her friendly approachable demeanor, extensive knowledge / skill base and the finished product is gorgeous. We are left to enjoy our lovely yard as it grows and matures throughout summer months. Thanks Lauren!!

Lauren has been helping us modernize our dated courtyard and front yard. She listened to what we wanted and was eager to make suggestions of things we had not thought of, like a water feature. We have been very happy with her work so far and are excited to move onto Phase II!

Letter of Reference

Unlike others we have worked with, Lauren was able to truly plug in to what we envisioned, because she spent time getting to know us, and understanding what our needs were. She seemed to magically know what we would love, and made it seem effortless. For the first time in 30 years, I could genuinely trust my designer. Lauren possesses a genuine care and concern for making her clients happy that is hard to find, and although she is a truly sweet person, she is also very professional, and able to supervise construction with a kind, yet firm hand. All of the contractors clearly respected her, and it was obvious they enjoyed working for her, which created a very positive and productive worksite.

Lauren is not only creative, with a keen eye for beauty, but she is extremely budget conscious, which in my opinion is unusual for such a talented and artistic person. We never had to worry about any tension over the budget; she was very committed to finding the best options to stay within it, and we were very happy with the entire plan. She is extremely knowledgeable about plants, and took into account our special circumstances (for example, we have four dogs), considering the function of the plants and not just the appearance. She met with me many times in person and took the time to learn what colors and textures I prefer, so the plant palette was truly designed just for me. Lauren’s talent goes beyond her extensive knowledge of plants; she has an incredible eye for the entire space, including all the hardscape, and how the house is part of a larger landscape plan. It was hard to recognize my home after her plan was implemented, even though we didn’t do anything to the actual house because everything worked so well together: the gorgeous vintage look pavers, the driveway, the plants and trees, the turf, the deck and pergola, and the stone walkway all looked so beautiful with and including my house.

After 30 years of home ownership, there are surprisingly few people I can recommend without hesitation, and Lauren is definitely one of them. I would not hesitate to work with Lauren again, and I am happy to speak with anyone considering her for their project.
