"I was looking for a landscape designer that would offer something more than the generic look that you get from the larger nurseries/larger landscape installation firms. Karla was very patient and generous with her time, and listened carefully to all of my "likes and dislikes". Given her vast knowledege of plants she was able to create a beautiful and unique design for me.
In addition to her being an excellent designer, Karla was a delightful person to work with. She is very professional, and was always available to share information about plants and gardening in general."

"My satisfaction with Second Nature Landscape Design cannot be overstated! Karla has marvelous vision and is a landscape artist with a keen eye for color, texture and form. This talent, combined with her ability to listen and understand the needs of her clients, to stay within a budget, and to work well with contractors has produced a landscape that is nothing short of breathtaking!"

"Karla has been my go-to gardener for the last ten years. I am always pleased with her work and her attention to detail. There are no questions that I could ask (and believe me, there were many) that she did not know an answer to.
Karla is very knowledgeable on many different topics related to the garden. I learned so much from her and am now able to apply some of those practices. I think the best part of my experience with Karla is her kindness. That is so important when you are just learning.
I definitely would recommend her to anyone that desires a wonderful gardening experience."

"We found Karla on the Second Nature Landscape Design website and we knew
she was the person for us. We needed some landscape work done early this Fall and needed some design direction.
Our project all happened as planned. A new stone retaining wall was built and filled with appropriate plant material, removal of overgrown plantings, harsh pruning on other plantings, new plantings for new rear deck and front porch beds, etc. She also purchased and delivered the new plants as planned and on time to be installed by our crew.
Like it or not Karla, we will call you again next time we need help!"
