We Create Garden Joy

There’s nothing quite as exciting, inspiring, and joyful as watching a garden blossom and grow. Our design and horticultural knowledge ensure not only an organized and continuous succession of blooms from the earliest to the latest parts of the growing season, but a lush and varied palette of foliage to anchor the garden in year-round splendor. Our passion and our years of expertise result in gardens that stand the test of time, and, with proper care, only get more spectacular as they progress over the years.

About Jennifer Mooney, Owner and Designer

“My path to becoming a garden designer and horticultural expert was not straight and narrow, and neither are my designs. 
Throughout my nearly twenty years in the fashion industry – most of it spent as a magazine fashion editor – I traveled the world to report on runway shows and to produce photo shoots. I was lucky enough to experience the world through the lens of design, and I absorbed the art, architecture, and of course, gardens in some of the most beautiful spaces in the world. I also had the privilege of getting to know designers across the globe and was inspired by how they managed to turn their creativity and passion into industry. I learned from these years in the fashion world that with some grit and some talent it was possible to operate a small, creative business, and even more importantly, to find great happiness doing it. 
In 2009 I took a leap of faith and decided to return home to Connecticut to help my mother, Paula Mooney, a renown Connecticut horticulturist and garden designer herself, to turn her little garden consulting operation into a business. It turned out to be the best decision of my life.
I found my true joy in the garden. My stilettos were replaced by work boots, but my quest to create and be surrounded by natural beauty remains the same. Thoughtful, elegant designs, extensive plant knowledge, and a passion for all things green and pollinator-friendly can be seen in every garden I create. I would love to work with you to create your perfect outdoor space!”
