Garden Design

With respect to garden design, Karen feels each space is influenced by both her client’s needs, and the lay of the land. Plant choice appropriate to location and the soil structure is also key. Karen balances this with an appreciation seasonal change, mature plant form, colour, site exposure and  light.

Karen has experience sourcing and maintaining plant material, and well versed in living wreaths, topiary, terrariums, and custom container gardens.
