“I cannot say enough great things about Gwen! With her exceptional service, attention to detail, and creative designs, she does not disappoint. We asked Gwen to design a private oasis for entertaining and dining. What impressed us the most was her design process with three completely different concepts (Other than on TV, who does that???) With the 3-D animation, it felt like we were physically in the space! The process was fun, educational, and far exceeded our expectations. Once you meet Gwen you will never look at your outdoor space in the same way.”

“I love Gwen! She designed, presented, recommended the installers (I love them, too), was there for the planting process, and has followed up regularly with advice and encouragement (water, water, water!) Special for me was her presentation where I could see how MY house will look with with her plant recommendations. Gwen is knowledgeable, thorough, flexible, accessible, enthusiastic, accommodating – and oh, so easy and fun to work with! I have worked with others and moved on, but I’m not moving on any more. Gwen is part of my plan from now on.”

Personally, I would rather have a pool. One tip, if you are installing one - think about your view when it is closed up the other 7 months of the year. #suemachomes,#realestate, #waynepa ... See MoreSee Less
