Colleen has a real passion for gardening and landscape design. She takes the time to understand what you want, provides creative suggestions, and works within your budget. Colleen is fun to work with and gave my family the finishing touches for a unique and pulled together outdoor space.

Colleen turned my rocky, plain, dull garden area into a bright  oasis. I love sitting in my garden and watching the butterflies and hummingbirds flutter about.

I asked Colleen to update my drab landscaping and install new plants in my front yard.  I loved the plan she created and the plants she recommended.  They were selected not only for their beauty but to withstand Texas heat and drought conditions.  I am so proud of how my home looks now and it's all due to Colleen's vision and expertise.

My yard was a mess and I had no idea how to approach so a big project.  I asked Colleen to brainstorm with me to come up with ideas for adding plants with color that would attract butterflies, are native to the area, drought tolerant and low maintenance.  Colleen had some great ideas for reducing the amount of sod while adding a butterfly garden and visual interest throughout the yard.  She drew up a plan and provided me with plenty of options.  Once we fleshed out the plan she stuck to the schedule and the work was completed on time and on budget.  Colleen has since come by and checked on the plants and shows interest in how things are progressing.  The yard looks wonderful and at a recent party we had so many complements.  I highly recommend Colleen for any landscaping projects.  She is a delight to work with, has some creative ideas and knows her stuff when it comes to plants.

We had the excellent and happy luck of being referred to Colleen for our garden design project. She quickly saw the potential in our weed-filled, boring backyard to become a beautiful green retreat. Colleen knows her stuff, from trees to shrubs, perennials, hardscapes, and water elements; her knowledge brings together great ideas and solutions for a variety of garden sizes and types. Using native plants to not only conserve water but to also support local wildlife was a priority for us which Colleen totally understood and delivered. Now our new garden is used daily not only by us but by all the amazing butterflies and hummingbirds it's also attracting. We are so grateful for her talent, vision, and great love of nature, she transforms the blah into the beautiful.

I couldn’t be happier with the work that Colleen did for me. Not only is she an expert in plants and design, but her customer service was amazing.


First she met with me and talked about what I envisioned (an entire back yard and front yard redo.) She was very happy that I had some photos of things that I liked to share with her. She then put together a plan for me to study. Colleen was more than happy to make minor modifications in the plan. Once the plan was approved she laid out the design in the yard by marking the area with little flags, and then she asked us to approve it one more time. She asked about color, feel, atmosphere, all those things that are so important in design.


Colleen quoted us a price and included the number of days the project would take. She and her team showed up early each day, cleaned up beautifully at the end of each day, and was done in the time proposed (3 days for the backyard which included installing a fountain and electricity and 2 days for the front.)She even called me and sent pictures so that we could make decisions while I was out of town!!


Colleen is just about the most pleasant person I know. She really knows what she is doing and will tell you when something won’t work. She definitely gets a 5-star rating.
