Client Testimonials

Creating a sustainable garden was a daunting task for me. I was spending money and effort year after year on plants that were not maintainable in my garden conditions.

Margo spent an afternoon with me touring the garden and provided insights and solutions that had never been considered. It is one thing to describe your situation to a garden center, but a completely different result when someone with Margo’s depth of knowledge is actually in your location and experiencing the intensity of the sun, and overall situation.  

With ease and confidence, Margo provided the level of detail and advice needed with information on specific plants and suitability, how to properly prune the shrubs to create growth, soil conditioning, as well as suggesting numerous alternatives that helped me transform the problem areas into a viable plan. But it wasn’t just about the knowledge – also her ability to transfer her vision and sketch a design that I could refer back to as time went on and keep things on track.

The result of the consult has made a significant difference in contrast to my many failed attempts.

We consider Margo to be A1 in her field. She created a fabulous design for our front garden and amazed us with her design skills and knowledge of plants. She provided optional ideas for our front garden that we would not have thought of.

We don't believe any one could have done a better job in design or show a greater insight regarding what was required for our front lawn to make a statement. Also, her timing was spot on for working with our contractors  - Margo was very considerate of our timing constraints. Thank you Margo!!

I worked with Margo over the years and in various capacities. She always amazes me with her combination of creative ideas and practical approaches to solving problems. She can put the fanciful together with real life.
