Kind Words About Us

We have a challenging yard--it's low and poorly graded, so becomes an unwanted pond in the spring and after hard rains. We hired Ashley to help us create a more relaxed, "meadow" feel for a section of the yard, fill in some of the space and also a rain garden feature to minimize and contain the ponding effect. Ashley came through in stellar form. We love her effort to, as she says, "make the plants work for you, rather than the other way around." She came up with a design that we love, and a selection of plants that meets our aesthetic sense. She was reliable, pleasant to work with and responsive. The installation went smoothly. We're so excited to watch our new yard mature!Read More

Ashley is lovely to work with! I am a beginner gardener and Ashley created a plan for us that was both appropriate to our skill level and that will allow us to grow our skills and create a beautiful outdoor space for our home.Read More

Ashley helped us create an overall concept for our outdoor space, including a beautiful stone patio, multi-seasonal gardens, and vegetable/fruit plans. She was positive and easy to work with. Her plans were detailed, clear, and showed a real ability to listen to her clients. She lovingly planted the garden and coordinated the stone work and tree installations. In all interactions she was clear, delightful to work with, and professional — as were the people with whom she coordinated to help complete the project.Read More

Ashley contacted me within 24 hours. She was very pleasant, kind and easy to talk to. She listened to my thoughts of what I wanted and was able to design a flower bed beyond my expectations. I had asked Ashley to choose all of the plants for me and she did not disappoint. She was also able to give me ideas of what I could do around the rest of my house. It was a pleasure working with Ashley and would choose her again for another project!Read More

Ashley, has done several landscaping projects at our property in Vermont. These projects have been done on time and on budget and we have been very pleased with the results. I would recommend Ashley to anyone.Read More

Ashley is extremely easy to work with. She has great ideas and really cares about your landscaping. She does an excellent job selecting plantings that will succeed and look good in our environment. And, she has been so good with follow up and several visits as we are not the most of green thumbs!Read More

I cannot say enough good things about Ashley. She was a delight to work with. She is creative, professional, cooperative, hands-on. She has a wonderful joie de vie, listens well and is reasonably priced. I had planted our gardens (of my own design) 25 years ago when our yard had no trees and was a "full-sun" garden. After all these years, the trees had matured to create, at best, a partial sun garden. I wanted to update our garden design to reflect the improvements we had made to our home. I also wanted to make use of the shrubs and perennials that were still healthy, possibly relocating them within an updated design, and include new perennials to add more color, variety and visual appeal. I explained that to Ashley and she came up with a plan that did exactly that! She created an overall design, made recommendations for new plantings, and ordered all of our choices. She worked with me to rearrange existing plants and shrubs, and add the new perennials. ( I had hired someone to help me pull sod for the new gardens and prep the soil.) I was, and continued to be, delighted with the finished product. Without any hesitation, I can recommend Ashley for your gardening projects.Read More

I had the good fortune of working with Ashley as our design architect. She listened well to what our needs were and then designed garden beds that continue to amaze, year after year. Ashley also helped with design and coordinated planting of many cedars, fruit trees, pines, willows and maples. I have recommended Ashley to friends and family members without hesitation. To a person, they have been extremely pleased with her work. If you need a landscape architect, Ashley is your gal!Read More

Ashley did an amazing job of unifying my vision to the landscape of my yard/property - and I couldn’t have been any happier. The level of detail that went into the layouts - and constantly dealing with my frequent questions went above and beyond. Her ideas were all reasonable, doable and she stayed within budget while doing a superior job. I look forward to continuing my work with Ashley in coming years as I adapt my gardens and continue to develop the property more. Highly recommend reaching out to her if you have specific needs in this region of Vermont!Read More
