About Designed Landscapes

Our History

Our journey began organically. As a plant biology college professor, I cultivated my own dream garden when I purchased my first home. Little did I know, my neighbors started admiring my garden and sought my help with their own yards. Word spread, and soon I found myself assisting more and more friends and acquaintances. It finally clicked that I had a natural talent for landscape design.

In 2015, I took my passion to the next level by obtaining a landscape design certificate from esteemed Emory University. As part of our coursework, we completed four impressive capstone projects.

This prompted me to establish Designed Landscapes that same year, and we’ve been flourishing ever since. Our secret to success is simple yet effective – we create custom gardens that prioritize personalization.

In 2023, we were fortunate to welcome David to our team, and his expertise has been an incredible asset. Moving forward, we are committed to delivering excellence in every project we undertake.

"I love designing and seeing a plan come to life, but most importantly I love the fact that my clients treat me as a friend and are just happy to see me as I am happy to see them."

""I feel very strongly that any good design starts with an understanding of how the space is to be used and then determining how that use works within the existing landscape, then creating something that not only works functionally but also looks wonderful.""
