Carole Detherage –Owner & Principal Designer
With over 25 years experience in the horticulture industry (20 of those years as a designer), Carole Detherage is passionate about garden design. Unlike many designers, who view garden design as merely "decorating with plants", Carole takes a much more all-inclusive approach. The garden is an extension of the house, and should be usable and livable on a day-to-day basis. This focus on function makes for gardens that are much more reflective of the client's personality and lifestyle, and that can continue to be enjoyed well after the garden has matured and the plants have reached full size.
Carole is available for on-site design consultations as well as all of our tutoring services, personal shopping services, and house calls.
