“You don’t have a second chance at a first impression.”  After wandering through a dear friend’s garden we had to ask who created their masterpiece. Their exuberant response was: Sue Dickson and the Artful Garden team, you would enjoy working with them.  From the start, Sue and her talented team demonstrated the essence of a ‘dream team’. Sue helped us define our vision, she developed a super creative plan and executed as promised.  We love working with Sue and her skillful team! The Artful Garden created and meticulously maintains our outdoor living room as if it was their own.”

John and Jeff C

“Thank you for your wonderful design and installation work in our yard. It really looks great in all seasons and it has also worked for our style of laissez-faire garden maintenance. It has done very well in the hot dry summers without watering and also looks great all winter.”

“After our first backyard remodel, we were left with a space that did not really match our aesthetic and vision for our outside spaces. We wanted something more from the areas we just changed and asked the Artful Garden for help. Sue took the time to find out what we loved about the outdoors and from those choices made a remodel plan that appealed to both of us. The process of landscape design to picking out plants could not have been easier. They even worked in my herb and vegetable garden that I do my best to keep up. Yard and plant maintenance has become an afterthought. Through good communication and prompt responses to our questions, we’ve never needed to worry that our landscaping will be anything but a delight whenever we are outside. They even saved my pear trees when they got sick. Could not recommend them more.”

Nathan & Mimi

“Our garden is fabulous and we’ve enjoyed watching it mature over time. We love the design work and the maintenance partnership has been great. We’re looking forward to future projects with Sue and her crew.”

Shawna & Elliot H

“We have an established urban garden hidden behind a climbing hydrangea covered wall and with a gate made by local artist Julie Berger. Sue and her crew have maintained the garden expertly for years. Sue continues to add colors, textures and fragrance that are a constant joy in every season. We regularly have visitors peering in to admire the garden’s beauty.”

Peter & Linda M

“We have trusted Sue and her team for both the design and the maintenance of our garden. We truly appreciate their knowledge and thoughtful care of our lovely backyard oasis.”

Bruce and Susan G

“Sue and her team created a true urban oasis that never fails to delight with big and small changes throughout the season. I continue to collaborate with the great staff at the Artful Garden for everything from basic seasonal maintenance to new ideas on evolving the garden.”

“The Artful Garden is truly just that – artful. I have had many landscapers before, they have the touch of design that goes beyond the normal trimming, hedging and mowing. What you get is a group that makes your garden beautiful. Not only that, but they are attentive and follow through and discover any problems before you have a chance to. That is a big step above the typical landscape company.”

“I enjoyed working with Sue and especially appreciated her process for coming up with a design we love.  Sue is very skilled at helping people describe their sometimes fuzzy ideas and turning them into an artistic and practical plan.  You ARE the artful gardener.”
