My name is Catherine Maxwell. I seem to have been born with a love for beautiful aesthetics. Formalizing this passion by earning a degree in interior design felt like an important milestone. Over time, my love of well-crafted garden landscapes also expanded. I was hooked. I wanted to bring the same design principles I knew worked so well indoors, into outdoor spaces.
Universal design principles apply no matter what. When followed, they create a cohesiveness that makes your world a more beautiful place. All you need to get started is a wish list with a budget. With that, we work together to make your dream a reality.
If your outdoor spaces are not generating the kind of joy you deserve – it's probably because there's a missing piece to your design strategy. While it took me countless hours of study, I did finally crack the code to building a solid and sustainable landscape.
Now, you may be thinking you could do the same thing on your own. However, consider working with a professional who will shave hours off your learning curve, and has passion, experience and vision that non-professionsals usually don't have.
OUTDOOR CURB APPEAL
Beautifully seductive, elegantly presented – the exterior of your home is about decoration leading to curb appeal. It can make all the difference.
It takes 3 years to grow a mature garden. Many home owners think they'll get their gardening efforts right over time. But because you only get one chance to make a good first impression, I encourage you to take the time to get it right with the help of a designer, from the beginning.
Is it possible to use the mobile phone to enhance the project communications and the approval process? You bet. Even though the landscapes we build are pre-approved, often we want a quick way to communicate that can take client engagement to a participatory level every step of the way.
UPDATES WITH VIDEO
When it comes to optimizing our communication - it's through first-class video. You want to know how progress is being made even when you’re at work, so you need professionals who know how to send video of our progress or any snags we run into. As we make your garden landscape come alive, we want you to be part of that process.
FEEDBACK AND REVIEWS
Years of business experience has taught me that raving fans are only created when all the right steps are in place.
"FEEDBACK CONCIERGE" is a simple client review system through which you send me your honest feedback based on your satisfaction with the project. You are not taken for granted. All feedback is taken seriously. Referrals are the lifeblood of any business and I want to make it easy for you to give feedback about the results. Your ultimate satisfaction is our final goal.
You'll love what I'm about to tell you. Why? Because everyone wants to get along well with the people they do business with. You want to feel listened to, and respected. I share lots of information about gardens with home owners to encoursge your ideas. You’ll become empowered in what we are doing together.
