Testimonials

“We are thrilled with the patio that you designed for us! It is a real oasis – a great place to spend a summer evening with friends. It was such a pleasure working with you – you were really able to capture our wishes and bring them to life.” – Anne Longworth, Hillsborough

“We love our new garden and are complimented on it by all the neighbors! I especially appreciate how attentive you were to my plant preferences, and your help throughout the installation process was invaluable.” –Beatrice Burke, Burlingame

“Kristen was recommended to us and we were thrilled with her work. She is a pleasure to work with, accessible, and open-minded. We interviewed 4 other landscape designers and architects. Kristen easily understood our needs and wishes and was able to give us a plan that was much more than we hoped for. We live on a hill with retaining walls and Oak Trees. There were many zones of planting and irrigation. She worked well with our contractor. She was especially helpful with plant recommendations; we are still being surprised by the lovely plants blooming in our garden year-round.” – Soheil Motamed, San Mateo

“I engaged Kristen in 2008 to come up with a design that would provide more usable space in our small and steep yard while incorporating our checklist of “wants”. Kristen came up with a great plan that not only included our checklist but gave us a vision for a space that we could enjoy for many years to come. Once the project began, we encountered some difficult challenges with “Belmont Bedrock” and Kristen worked seamlessly with our contractor to come up with great solutions. We are very pleased with the outcome of our new yard and the appreciate the passion and creativity that Kristen brought to our project.” – Sharin Castro, Belmont

“Our front gardens are all in bloom right now and look SO good! We love the diversity of unique and colorful plants that you chose.” -Wendy Gale, Burlingame

“Kristen was a pleasure to work with and was patient with me as a novice gardener. She listened to my ideas and goals and placed them into a plan that worked for me. My goal was low maintenance, color and variety of plants that could span through the different seasons. The end result was a well-balanced variety of plants and colors that complemented my backyard that I could never have chosen had I attempted to complete the project on my own. Kristen was completely professional, honest and efficient in completing my project and I was very happy with the end result. I admire her completed projects in my neighborhood and I would highly recommend her to my family and friends. ” – Pam Heller, Burlingame
