Client Testimonials

Chris Kelln – “The landscape design services provided by Denise are top-notch. She designs a yard with both the global vision and specific details in mind. She has a vast knowledge of horticulture and therefore chooses plants that are appropriate for the given climate and soil conditions. She effectively used our input to develop a design that far exceeded our expectations. Her final landscape plan is hand drawn and exceptionally detailed, which I feel provides a better and truer picture of landscape than a digitally rendered drawing. I would encourage anyone developing or altering their yards to use Gardens Four Seasons design services.”

Crystal & Chris Evanisky – “WOW!  I wasn’t expecting so much detail from the concept plan, so what we ended up with way exceeded our expectations.  this is a yard from heaven!!   It included everything we wanted in our yard, in a design that’s functional & that will last throughout the changes of our life.  Great job.  Many thanks!”
