"My intention is to create gardens that will stand the test of time and be a reflection of my client's aesthetics as well as my own."
"I have worked with Johnna on a few projects. we have just finished the front yard of my current home and are now starting on the back. The style of this plan is English Cottage. In working with Johnna, I have found her to be very timely and responsible. I know quite a bit about the subject matter, so I found that when I asked her a question about a plant, flower or situation, I always got a response that i expected. I could therefore trust her to make appropriate decisions about where we were going to place specific plants, allow for traffic flow or the best place to put the outdoor kitchen. She always has an eye on important factors like, what type of design goes with your residence, will it be colorful all year long, can it be maintained with out to much effort, is it water wise and is it on budget. Johnna, is always available to answer my questions and to discuss possibilities. When I needed her to came to help me at a moment’s notice, she dropped everything to help me out. Her crew was in and out in a week and the landscape 9 months later still looks wonderful! " Salimbach
"Johnna made our dreams come true. We have a garden of deep beauty and serenity." - Drs. William & Susan Buchholz"Congratulations to all of you on what Susan and I knew all along - that you had envisioned and created a masterpiece! It is always a happy experience to just open the door and hear the sounds and see the sights of our fabulous yard. And it gets better with each passing day. We are so lucky!!!" - Brad & Susan K.
“Johnna's vision for our yard and the end result was spectacular. It is amazing what can be done in small to medium size spaces. The curves of the lawn and patio as well as the choice of plants with lots of colors and textures bring it to life. We love our yard now and spend our evenings and weekends enjoying it." - Barbara C.
"When we landscaped on our own we failed miserably - spending money and time on plants that died or grew too big or too small. Johnna has an artist's eye. Her vision gave our hodgepodge backyard an updated, cohesive and playful look." - Rachelle
“We had an excellent experience working with Johnna on our landscape project. She was very adept at taking our thoughts, visions, magazine photos etc. and developed a design that far exceeded our expectations. We were very pleased with her ability to function efficiently and effectively as she delivered sketches detailing our vision after our very first meeting. We had previously worked with designers who, after multiple meetings, were unable to come up with a satisfactory design, but Johnna was able to do so after our initial meeting. Johnna is a skillful communicator and made it a priority to keep us well informed. We were very pleased with Johnna's talent and expertise in creating our beautiful award-winning outdoor space. We would certainly use her again for any other projects. - Brian Carrie
“This review is way overdue. Johnna is wonderful and easy to work with. She is truly committed to provide you the best service. Johanna did our backyard design this summer and we happy with the results. Even then she completed landscape design she continued to check on our progress, provided recommendations and always was there for us and our questions.” Anna Gantvarg
