In The Garden, LLC
Laura D. Bibler, Principal

Design Profile

Since 1997, I have created and directed the installation of landscape designs at private homes and historic estates.  Projects range from modest garden spaces to comprehensive master plans. Regardless of the scope, designs are created to harmonize with the historical context and physical characteristics of the surrounding landscape.  All services are tailored to the specific tastes and needs of each client.       

Projects: Perennial, rose, herb and bulb gardens, bird gardens, shade gardens, wetlands, pool and water features, seascapes, foundation plantings, patios, pathways and entranceways.

Design Services: Consultations, site analysis, master plans, planting plans, customized garden maintenance plans, and supervision of installation.

Design specialties: Horticultural consultation, historic preservation, and lectures.
