What Others Have to Say About Her Designs:

“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 with a patio for entertaining and dining. I think the thing that impressed us the most was the whole design process with three unique and completely different concepts (I mean really, other than on TV who does that???) and the way in which she presented them. With the animation, it felt like we were physically in the space. Very cool to say the least. The process has been fun, educational and far exceeded our expectations. Once you meet Gwen you will never look at your outdoor space in the same way.” ~ Sue, Wayne, PA

“For years, I didn’t know where to begin. I knew that I could enjoy my outdoor spaces more, but it wasn’t until I began working with Gwen that I could visualize, and now enjoy, my property thoroughly.” ~ Mark, Wayne, PA

“Gwen began working with me on my challenging property. On her first site visit she learned that we want to use native plants, we have deer and black walnut trees (which emit a toxin that kills many plants), and our soil is terrible and rocky. Undaunted, Gwen jumped right in there and researched all of the best shrubs, trees and plants for our situation. Gwen came up with two plans for the front and two plans for the back of my property. When Gwen made her presentation to us she had all of the plant lists, photos of the plants and perspective renderings, which made it easy for us to envision what our finished product would look like. She has been a pleasure to work with and she recommended an installer that was equally fabulous.”
