Lara has a vision and listens to her clients like no other person. My former wasteland of a yard filled with blackberries and neglect was transformed – my yard and garden beds bring me great joy now. Lara selected beautiful plants while asking for my input all along. She explained things to me throughout the entire process and listened to me, incorporating my interests in the yard (for example, I like to dig clams, so Lara suggested using bright white crushed oyster shells in certain areas of my yard and the choice is stunning and meaningful to me.) Her crew worked hard throughout the day, producing quality retaining walls, excavating, and planting all without complaint. My yard is now a beautiful, natural and peaceful sanctuary that I’m extremely proud to share with my friends and that brings smiles to my face.

Lara was just wonderful to work with. We have a smaller yard space yet we wanted it to live large. We have an eating area, a patio area under a beautiful pergola with wisteria, a small grassy area. We wanted fragrant plants, plants where something is in bloom all year, an edible garden, evergreen plants, climbing plants and more.

I especially loved her artistic touches and ideas to make our yard space unique. Lara came up with a fantastic plan where she fulfilled our wish list. She’s knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with.

Lara is an exceptionally talented landscape designer. And smart. She met with us a few times to ensure she understood the many challenges in our backyard as well as our specific concerns and desires. We were in consistent communication through email and Pinterest. Lara set up a Pinterest Board, specifically for our yard, that enabled Lara and I to communicate and share specific plants and hardscape ideas.

Lara’s final landscape designs were detailed and spot-on incorporating all our wishes. We look forward to working with Lara and her team for the implementation of the design.

Lara and her team were amazing to work with. In 4 days they recreated my backyard including a flagstone patio, replacing a very old fence with the style I chose, plantings that were specific for a shady area, installed lights, added stone pathways, and added mulch to my entire garden area both front and back. Lara listened to my interests, offered great ideas of her own, and oversaw her very talented crew often during the day.

My friend introduced me to Lara. She also had done work for another of our friends. All jobs were painless, very reasonably priced, and completed in a timely manner.

We liked Lara right away because she didn’t want to change everything in our yard, but to update it and make it more attractive. She said that she liked meandering around in the yard when she first visited us. Lara designed a beautiful outdoor patio and screen, with a water feature and a dry creek bed, that took the place of an overgrown corner of our yard that was unusable. We are very happy with it and have a renewed love of our yard.

Lara was a pleasure to be around, both in business and just in general.  We will definitely keep her as our consultant on all future projects in our yard.

Lara (the owner) is an absolute pleasure to work with.  She is extremely knowledgeable and seems to really love her job. I wanted to make my front yard beautiful, but also affordable.  Lara didn’t talk me into anything out of my dollar range and actually did all she could to keep costs low.  All calls and emails I sent to her were returned immediately.

I am so excited about my front yard project that I will be hiring her to do the landscaping of my backyard too.
