Our house’s “standard builder” landscaping was unimaginative at best, and had seen better days. We wanted to replace the bushes with something different from the usual rhododendrons and azaleas. We are pretty serious do-it-yourselfers and can dig with the best of them, but we do not have the expertise needed to select the right plants and position them properly.  We asked Liz to design a new landscape plan for us, and we are thrilled with the results.  Liz listened to our preferences, which included year-round color, low maintenance, and deer resistance. She brought us photos and descriptions of various options, carefully measured the area, and provided to us a detailed, to-scale plan complete with recommendations on where to purchase the plants.  We followed her instructions carefully, and now have a unique, colorful front garden that is the prettiest in the neighborhood!
