Featured Customer

Joan is the absolute best. We were immediately struck by her professional, warmly engaging and deeply knowledgeable presence. Greatly beyond our expectations, Joan beautifully transformed our front and back yards. Not only was she able to make things grow and thrive where we had just about given up, she did it with her unique style and true artistry. Now there are slush greens of every sort and a riot of gorgeous colors. Never missing a detail and always taking in suggestions, she made it easy and fun, and what a spectacular crew, always on time and ready to go. My husband and I would be thrilled to give Joan and Acer Gardening design our highest recommendation. In fact, if she would let us, we would keep her sign up in front of our house indefinitely!

Happy Customers

Joan re-designed our landscaping at the front of our house and what a difference it has made. She then designed our backyard and again, it has transformed how it looks. And she has done our pots for us two years in a row. What we most appreciate about her is that she listens to what you want, designs something that meets those needs and is genuinely committed to making sure you are happy with the end result. She's a keeper!

We are thrilled with Joan and her guys. They are true professionals who know and love their business. Joan is a Master at her craft and I had so much fun going with her to the nurseries to personally pick out the pieces that went into my dream garden. She is a stickler for being timely and meeting deadlines and will not worry you once the job commences unless you have questions. She draws out each detail for you to approve and discusses each piece that is to be used. If she brings something you don't like she replaces it without a word or problem.

She is always there to remind me and help me to do the things needed to keep my garden beautiful and always takes the time to teach me what I need to know or remind me of what I have forgotten. Do yourselves a favor and call Acer Garden Design. There really is none better! If you want to see my garden or speak directly with me, please have Joan give you my number.

Joan designed and installed my front garden in 2014. She did a terrific job. From the outset, she was a pleasure to work with. She listened carefully to my goals and aspirations, and translated them into a clear plan. She actually managed to pull off the installation early so that it would be ready for an event we were hosting. The layout is thoughtful and beautiful, and the cadence of blooms lasts across three seasons. The plants she selected and planted were healthy and have grown well. Today, passers-by routinely stop by to compliment us on our garden, and our neighbors have thanked us for helping to beautify the block. In addition, we've noticed that a lot of wildlife-especially birds-are fans of the garden as well. Thanks Joan and Acer Garden Design!

Hi Joan! I keep meaning to reach out to you to let you know how wonderful the flowers are this spring! The bulbs you planted last fall burst with such delight. I've gotten so many compliments and have even seen people stop in front of the house to admire them. You do such beautiful work. Thank you Acer Garden Design!!!

Joan has a fantastic eye. She helped transform our overgrown patch of weeds and unruly shrubs into a harmonious blend of colors, textures and shapes that continuously change and evolve over all 4 seasons. She is a pleasure to work with and has helped make our garden a joy to come home to. Acer Garden Design transformed our home and yard!
