How We Work With You

Design With Us

As the team behind Avant Gardens, we like to call ourselves Katherine the Garden Sage and Chris the Garden Guru. And while that's all in good fun, we do in fact enjoy a creative partnership that is fueled by more than our individual areas of expertise: together we have a keen ability to conceive and implement garden designs that move the soul and power the heart. Our landscape is your oasis; your place to smell the scents and hear the sounds of early morning over coffee; your haven at sunset at the end of a busy day.

The special beauty of multi-season garden design is in its ever-changing landscape. We love working closely with clients to determine the immediate ways we can improve an outdoor space, as well as set the elements in place for the richness yet to come. We do all of that by designing frames for life to happen in. Utilizing stonework and an abundance of easy care plantings, we use the garden to tell your unique love story. View some of our design work, and we think you'll see how landscape elements with art and soul come together to make a garden that is sensuous, enduring and beautiful.
