We have been "green" pioneers and advocates for the benefits of being water-wise, sustainable and organic long before it became trendy.

At the core of our projects are deeply prepped raised beds using a premium, proprietary, organic soil blend that supports healthy, thriving plants that don?t need chemical life support.
I was so excited when I came upon Home & Garden Design, Inc. because it was very important to me to find a landscape company that embraces holistic principles. Danna and Conrad understand the energy... and integrity of the land ... that “feng shui” element which assures you flow through the space with ease. Each little nook of the yard suddenly had a purpose. It’s like our land had doubled in size! They also understood how to take care of the land without relying on harmful chemicals, which is very important to us, especially since we have three children. I was so relieved to be able to entrust the transformation of our yard to an organic team. With their warmth, professionalism, and experience, they made every step of the design and implementation process comfortable for us. I know that Danna and Conrad were meticulous about the details of the design and quality of the work. Thank you for transforming our backyard from an ivy mess to beautiful terraces where our family has been playing in ever since.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
We cannot say enough good things about working with Danna on our landscape update. We needed a complete change with our front yard of builder grade shrubs that were almost 20 years old. She got it... right with her design. The extensive questionnaire, while daunting at first, gave her all the pieces we were looking for in our new landscape. Her design was beautiful and we have received so many compliments from our neighbors. Danna is certainly 'a good thing'.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

“We are really satisfied with the work Home and Garden Design, Inc. has done for us. We had terrible, terrible problems to deal with and now we have none because of the work they did for us. They were the only ones who gave us an honest answer regarding our problems. They really went in-depth. Home & Garden Design, Inc. did what they said they would and did things when they said they would.” “There was a problem with a crape myrtle tree that did not get any leaves in the spring, however, oddly, it got leaves in late summer. We called the Cain’s back and told them that the tree didn’t need to be replaced afterall. They still replaced it. They didn’t have to do that, but they said that they were not convinced that the tree was healthy.” Wow! What service!
We first saw Home and Garden Design’s work at the Southeastern Flower Show. We were impressed with the scope of their designs. They seemed to have the range of skills and services that we needed for our landscaping project. In fact, what we received was a complete transformation of our yard. From the beginning, they solicited our input, including an in-depth survey and interview. It was obvious throughout the process that our needs and desires were their foremost consideration in creating our design. The landscape architect came prepared with photographs of plant material and examples of their work. These were very helpful in getting us from a vague notion of what we wanted to a concrete plan. The design provided for a phased installation to stay within our budget. In every case, her recommendations on plants and other materials proved to be excellent. Our architect and her crew were prompt and maintained the project schedule. H&GD provided us with a detailed guide for maintaining our new plants. Follow-up visits have provided guidance on pruning, watering, and general upkeep. They consistently did exactly what they said they would do. We already plan to use H&GD for future projects and enthusiastically recommend their work to anyone looking for professional, reliable landscape design.
Using a landscape design plan Danna created for us in 2004 we've built a beautiful 50 ft x 7 ft bed in our front yard. Danna selected plants that provide lots of color from Spring through Fall and we enjoy the blooms and butterflies every day. Choosing Danna to design my garden is one of the better decisions I've ever made. I highly recommend her.
This is THE plan for us. I can see me sitting and enjoying each of these places. I’m sure we will REALLY like this."
After using this company for 2 preliminary landscape plans (which we were charged for), I have been unable to get return phone calls or emails for 3 months. Very disappointed in their lack of follow up or concern for leaving us in the middle of the process.
Let me assure you that we take this complaint very seriously. Home & Garden Design, Inc. has a strict policy of returning all customer phone calls or emails within two workdays. We have a staff member whose job is to make sure that this happens.
I personally monitor all incoming email correspondence and am unaware of any unhappy clients.
Since you have posted anonymously I have no way to investigate your complaint or even verify that you have ever been one of our clients. If you would like to call or send me an email referring to this post I would be happy to do whatever I can to address this issue.

We have been so happy with the design that Dana created for our home. We were able to easily implement her suggestions and the results are fabuous! Within a month of completing the front yard, our neighborhood association awarded us the Yard of the Month!
"We would have been impressed if you came up with only ONE good idea for our difficult site and desires BUT YOU presented us with SIX wonderful concepts to consider. Thank you. We are SO impressed."
The yard looks great! You guys did an awesome job! We are very happy with everything. It will take time for us to learn the name of each plant, so your updated blueprint will really help out. We noticed and appreciated your attention to detail on building the rock walls, the preparation of the beds, the placement of the plants, everything that went into the project.
The owners of this business planned, executed and followed-up on a large landscaping project. One co-owner is extraordinarly knowledgable about the plant world, and executes the landscape plan and supervises the planting process. Te other owner handles all the hardscape elements, including driveways, paths, wall, with a great knowledge of construction, planning,delivery of materials, on site supervision. This company begins the process of planning your landscape with a many paged, but easy to use questionaire, designed to elicit your tastes in plants, colors, textures, landscape architectural styles, and specific needs based on your lifestyle. When they presented me with the proposed plan, there was very little need for me to suggest any changes in the plan, because they had taken the time to understand exactly what I was aiming for from the beginning. The plants they planted were all of extremely high quality and planted with more care and organic amendments to the soil than I could have imagined. The crew was always on time, efficient, and knowledgable. The site was always left immaculate, and the attention to detail in the execution of the plan amazed me. I rate them the highest in all categories.
I've worked with Danna & Conrad on several occasions over the years and have found them to be extremely professional and knowledgeable. The plant selection, soil preparation and attention to detail is second to none. I would certainly recommend them to anyone wanting a job done right and look forward to working with them again in the future!
