"I discovered Lucy and Perennial Partners when they designed a friend's garden. In the ensuing four years she has completed seven projects for me — my own home and six houses that I have remodeled and sold. Each garden is uniquely designed to compliment the architecture of the house and the site. She has incorporated interesting and functional hardscape elements with interesting plants while staying within budget. I am continually amazed at the seasonal changes in my garden and the way it delights me all year. She feels like family and we have fun working together."
— Vicky Peters, Sherwood, Oregon
"I want to tell you how much I love my back yard. It saves my soul. It astonishes me every day.... There's shade and sun and balance. Every angle, every view looks good.... Deep solid design. Thank you." — Karen, Portland, Oregon
"Perennial Partners helped us redesign our 1/3 acre garden. New terraces, sitting spaces and pathways lead you through the garden offering respite and comfort. Out of the chaos of construction emerged a garden that delights in all seasons. I just picked my first hellebore pairing it with heuchera, wild ginger and lavender foliage for my first garden bouquet. We can't wait to watch spring unfurl. Thank you for our garden — we love it." — Shannon, Portland, Oregon
