The speed at which Janet came up with a design for us was very helpful- we found Nature by Design just before growing season but have still been able to start this year. Additionally, it was great to do everything virtually so we could carry on COVID-19 notwithstanding. The option to create a landscaping plan for us to work on at our own pace allows us to tackle our garden in a time- and cost-effective way. Even better to find a designer who shares our values re: native species, pollinator habitats, etc. Thanks Janet!

We were lucky enough to have Janet design our backyard. We were interested in enhancing the beauty and utility of our backyard after moving into our new house. We provided Janet with measurements and a list of must-haves including a larger entertaining space, a vegetable garden, making use of current plants and easy maintenance. Janet delivered more than we could have imagined. The backyard design is absolutely stunning, exceeding all expectations and desires. She provided an animated walk-through and detailed plan that helped us picture exactly what it would look like. The design is laid out in a way that allows us to implement it in phases so the upfront cost is manageable. We’re now excited to get started on our backyard project.

It was a delight to work with Janet as she is so passionate and knowledgeable about gardening. Moving into a new build and our first home, Janet was able to envision a breathtaking garden in our current “raw” space. Janet’s design balanced our wishes as well as educating us about the best types of plants for our area which was much appreciated. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would recommend her to all levels of gardeners. We can’t wait to see the garden grow throughout the decades – thank you!

I had wanted to get rid of my front lawn for a number of years. Janet brought me through the process of planning a design, making suggestions for native plants, sourcing them and altering plans to accommodate my preferences. I now have a peaceful and interesting garden; I am thrilled with the results!”
