“Laura Janney made our garden dreams come true! We lived in London for six years (where beautiful English cottage gardens thrive) and when we returned back here I dreamed of having one. We interviewed many gardeners, landscapers and landscape architects but no one seemed to understand our vision. Laura did. We are so happy and so grateful.”
When I met these clients, they said they had a large space on their front lawn that they wanted to turn into a cottage garden. Inspired by the time they spent in England, they envisioned a carefree, wild, natural garden filled with color.
I created a stone path to break up the space and led it to a seating area where one can get lost within the flowers, bees, and butterflies. To show colors all summer I planted an assortment of perennials, shrubs and annuals. It is called The Magic Garden because of the way the setting sun makes the flowers glow and the garden light up. It is truly magical to watch.
