We could not have had a better experience or be more pleased with the finished product. Lauren struck the perfect balance of listening and suggesting, so right away it felt like she just “got” us and what we were hoping for. From her first draft of the design to little tweaks and adjustments we made based on availability and pricing, she was truly excellent. Professional, pleasant, and responsive with an exceptional eye for designing landscaping that complements our outdoor living space
