Acid rain, chlorine and chloramine in our water source, construction practices, and a variety of other environmental factors have damage or destroyed the fertility of our soil. The lack of fertility in our soil have forced many homeowners and gardeners into a self perpetuating chemical cycle of inorganic fertilizers, fungicides and pesticides. We can help you break the cycle of chemical dependency and toxicity in your garden by restoring the fertility of your garden soil. This is especially important if you are growing edibles.

Laurie was great to work with and we are so happy with our final plan. She was thoughtful in putting together ideas that fit our needs. The documents she prepared for our review and for the landscape contractor were very clear and informative. I would easily recommend her to anyone.
Laurie listened to all our requests, and gave us a full design in a very short time. She then worked with us to find a contractor, and worked with the contractor to get us on budget. During installation, she came by frequently to help with plant locations and general decision making. Overall, she made the process very easy and fun.
We used Laurie to develop a landscaping plan and plant design for a front and side yard, and were very satisfied. Laurie did a fabulous job on all aspects of the plan. Her concept is to take a long term view of the landscaping and build something that will last over time, not just look good day one. Laurie's price was very reasonable and she is thoroughly knowledgeable and professional.
We are extremely happy with Laurie with her landscape design work. She is super responsive to our request/inquiries and usually always email back on the same day. We thought this is extremely important since we had been frustrated with some other contracting experiences in the past. Throughout the process, we proved to be right: she is very detailed-oriented, responsible, professional and caring (both for our property value and the plants!
Laurie did a fantastic job putting together an overall landscaping design that transformed a large landscape into an eye pleasing vibrant garden/landscape. She listened, asked us many questions to understand our visions, and created a landscape design, incorporating permacultural principles to ensure a self sustaining garden/landscape. Overall, we are very satisfied with how everything turned out.
Laurie does it again! I worked with her in 2012 and gave her a 5-star rating then and recently she was back at our home to create living art in our backyard. She designed, delivered and planted a new vertical garden that's THE stunning focal point in our yard. I had the same experience working with her--attention to detail, conscientious, creative, and someone who goes above and beyond!
Laurie is an artist! She transformed my ordinary patio into an outdoor living room using teak tiles over the cement slab, which now looks like a deck. The plants she chose are easy to care for. Landscape lighting and a water feature really transformed the space into a garden space that I can enjoy year-round, day or night. She also ordered and outdoor couch, swivel chair, umbrella and coffee table She created an outdoor sanctuary for me. She also designed a memory garden out my living room window in memory of my husband. Since this garden was on common ground she had submit the garden plan to my homeowners
association. She was available to answer their questions. The board approved her landscape design. I'm thrilled!
Working with Laurie was a great experience. She is extremely creative, professional, flexible and a great deal of fun. I contacted her to redesign my small yard in Foster City, which was in high need of a transformation. She promptly and thoroughly provided options and designed a plan. Using this we were able to create the space we wanted within budget and with great results. Laurie was always available and helpful, and went the extra mile to make this a productive and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend Laurie and Seasonal Celebrations for your landscaping/outdoor space planning needs. I am looking forward to working with her again.
5 stars for Laurie and Seasonal Celebrations for designing a new landscape for my front yard on a very tight budget. Laurie was meticulous in gathering data, collaborating with me regarding my likes and dislikes, suggesting various options, and finally ordering plants from the grower for my do-it- yourself project. She helped me find a contractor for the parts I couldn't do, who is at this time laying a beautiful brick walkway. Laurie is so creative, and her love of what she does is contagious. I highly recommend Seasonal Celebrations.
Laurie is an artist, phenomenal talent and tremendously knowledgeable about floral and garden design.
She is a wonderful choice if you seek a highly sophisticated floral designer that takes a sensitive botanical approach, is a master technician and knows how to edit with precision.
I have used the company for both garden design and flowers. On both occasions this service was excellent and the quality was impeccable. Truly beautiful work.
Not only is she a wonderful florist, she is one of the most talented garden designer out there. Her knowledge of plants and the environments in which they thrive is truly remarkable. You really MUST hire her!!!
I reached out to Laurie to help me design my landscape plan. I met with several others and Laurie was the one who both listened to me and provided her expert opinion and more importantly justification for her suggestions and ideas. When there was a mixup in the direction of the design, she quickly came back with new ideas and ways to improve it. She was also super excited about the plan itself and has been helping me find ways to put it in place by getting the right contractor and offering her discounts and services for all of the materials needed. In short, I enjoyed working with Laurie and look forward to the day my landscape is completed! I'd highly recommend her services!
Laurie did a fine job of re-designing the landscaping for our front yard. We had a hard deadline and she had no problem meeting it.
Laurie has great knowledge of California native plants and her design took into consideration all requirements we had (drought-resistant, deer-resistant, tolerance to strong winds, clay soil).
I highly recommend Laurie for any landscape design job.
I have been in the landscaping, maintenance and garden advice business for four decades and Laurie is a great designer. When it comes to knowledge, experience and professionalism Seasonal Celebrations creates!
