Taking care of my clients gardens is more than a great job;  it is a dream come true!  And when they tell me how much they love the work I have done for them; my heart becomes so full!

I love, love, love, my landscaping by Plant Design Therapy. I contacted MyLan at Plant Design Therapy to give some curb appeal to my very old house that has been in my family for more than 60 years. The parameters I gave her included giving me a cottage-style garden which included saving and relocating my grandmother's peony's, saving and including in her design the serendipitous violets that carpeted the area, relocating the tiger lilies to a patio area, and incorporating red roses, a favorite flower of my grandmother, into her design. In addition to that, I added a vegetable garden in the back with raised beds and a rustic cedar picket fence with a swing gate, and copper toppings on the the fence post, an elegant touch suggested by MyLan, that I just love. 
The work exceeded my expectations and I am the envy of the neighborhood.
I must also give kudos the the crew that worked on my project. They were efficient, hardworking, thoughtful, conscientious and courteous. 
I plan to use MyLan and Plant Design Therapy for future projects. It was a pleasure to work with MyLan and I look forward to future collaborations.

We had so much fun working on your property, Marilynn! Thank you so much for the cool drinks and conversation. We loved every bit of it! I am looking forward to putting in your front yard fencing, and planting climbing roses to slow down traffic. 😍

Job: Replace diseased pachysandra in small garden
Mylan of Plant Design Therapy, responded a few minutes after I posted the job on thumbtack. Throughout the job,I appreciated that she was very responsive to texts and phone calls, and willing to work with us on the overall budget. Mylan suggested a "cottage garden" to replace the portion of pachysandra that was diseased. This is something we had never considered, and as the design took place we were very pleased. We wanted something that would be easily maintained and would thrive in the sunny and shady areas of the garden. We worked interactively with Mylan on the web to choose color schemes and other aspects we might not have considered. Her crew seemed very capable and did a great job with planting. The biggest job turned out to be removing roots of dead pachysandra, which had been growing in that area for over 30 years. This took many many more hours than expected, so an extra day was required, and we were glad they were able to schedule more time on the fly. They also edged and mulched all beds in our yard, which gives an overall “upgrade” in appearance we hadn’t expected. We’re very excited about watching our cottage garden grow. I would highly recommend Plant Design Therapy, especially for someone interested in Mylan’s design skills and extensive gardening knowledge.

What a pleasure it was to work with you, Janet! Thank you so much for kindness and generosity while the crew and I were there. We appreciated the cool drinks and conversation while working. I am excited that you have signed up for recurring maintenance so I may check up on your garden to tend to it! Looking forward to laying sod in the Fall and beautifying the rest of your property!

Mylan and her team did an amazing job on our landscape. She is a Master Gardener, knows her plants, and was a big help selecting the right plant mix for the different parts of our yard - with careful thought on how to use the plants to pull the different areas together. We absolutely love how she used various sedum and crawling thyme to dress up our natural stone stairway and rock wall. And her crew did a great job edging and mulching all of our beds. We love to garden, but with limited time it was a treat to have her team come in and take this work off of our plate. We look forward to enjoying our gardens all summer!
