Katrine and I started working together in the fall of 2008. I had the design words, I needed someone to craft the words into sentences and the sentences into paragraphs that told a story. My story. Katrine did that, and so much more. When the project was completed, my small house now has a "living room" that is enjoyed by me, my family, and my friends year round. I have even become a novice gardener because of her. You could use someone else, but why would you?

Working with Katrine to transform my large space into the garden I envisioned was truly a partnership.  She thoughtfully combined my affinity for certain plants and desire to create outdoor living spaces with her vision for how the garden would look, feel and function.  The result is a vibrant space that is lived in and enjoyed by humans, hummingbirds, and bees.

Designing a landscape with Katrine is a wonderful experience. She has a tremendous wealth of knowledge that, combined with a willingness to engage with her client's ideas, makes working with her an absolute pleasure.

Our garden brings joy every day – it is a great enhancement to every day life.

We get loads of compliments on the garden from visitors and guests – they call it a paradise!

I love having fresh flowers from my own garden in the house.

Bewitched by gardens for many years, and familiar with many a landscaper, we were excited to bring Katrine into our garden planning when we completely re-landscaped our yard. Katrine brings an entirely different level of awareness to garden design. She tailors to the site, the microclimates and to us! Our garden enchants me every time I look at it, soothes me every time I walk in it. Every season brings a shift in focus in the garden, so there is always something new to treasure. Even our neighbors exclaim that our garden brings them joy. Katrine's love of her work and extensive knowledge of plants make her a rare talent.

Everything looks beautiful - thank you for accomplishing the project efficiently and professionally - despite the weather that didn't fully cooperate.

Working with Katrine is like working with an artist. Every garden detail has been thoughtfully created and implemented. Landscape design is not just a job for Katrine, it's a passion, a way of life and it's evident when you step in to our garden. The varietals are unique and expresses our personality. Katrine is able to achieve this because she is a skillful listener. This talent is much appreciated and is one of the keys to her success. I have been a client of Katrine's for over 15 years and I look forward to our future endeavors!
