At Cathy D's, we take a cooperative approach, developing the design concept together with our clients, tailoring the service according to their taste, needs and budget.


Even the most contemporary gardens with clean architectural lines and strong bone structure need to be softened with beautiful planting. We prepare planting plans, numbers, spacing and plant care.

From start to finish, we'll handle it.
