One of the greatest resources I have ever found is Living Designs.  Carol and I
have been working together for 10 years and through foundation plantings,
perennial gardens, rose gardens, grass gardens, shade gardens, custom fences, stone walkways, stone walls and a new driveway Carol has completely transformed our home !! Her elegant, natural style, discerning eye and love of nature is a winning combination in landscape design. Carol has also cared enough, and found time, to gently recommend paint colors and placement of garden accessories as part of the package. 
My budgets have varied from year to year but no matter what the job I have always received the most incredible attention and care to every phase of my projects.  I truly could not recommend anyone with more confidence than Carol and David and Living Designs !   Amy & Fabio F. - New Canaan
When I bought my home ten years ago the gardens were amazing;  three years
later I had managed to kill just about everything. Not knowing a weed from an
annual, let alone an annual from a perennial, I needed help.  Carol and David from Living Designs not only took the time to redesign existing beds and add accent beds but explained what they were planting and why.  They turned our gardens and property into a show place that needs a minimal amount of
maintenance and looks like they're right out of Garden Design Magazine.  The pool and terrace containers and urns add that special touch and brings everything together.

Carol and David from Living Designs have been helping me with landscaping since 1996.  They are both so capable, such fun and total joys to work with - I can't imagine my life (and landscaping) without
Carol has wonderfully creative ideas and a lovely natural approach to
landscaping.  She really listens and works with you.  I never wanted the landscaping to be fussy or high in maintenance ... Carol and David did a
superb job giving me exactly what I wanted.
Carol and David have always given me very special care and attention
to detail in all aspects of our projects together over the years.  They are
the best !!  Ann D. - New Canaan
Carol of Living Designs has taken care of my landscaping requests for over
ten years -- first in Darien and now in New Canaan.  I have been so very pleased with her creativity and tasteful designs.  The final results have given much enjoyment and I continue to receive many compliments from friends and family every spring, summer and fall.  The men who work with Carol (mainly her brother David) are very professional, knowledgeable and such a pleasure to work with. When they leave I am left with a smile on my face and a beautiful job well done --- always!  Madeline P. - New Canaan
 For many years we have used Living Designs for their landscape designs and maintenance of our projects.  They are
creative in their designs and we have always been excited with the finished results. "Fabulous, beautiful, gorgeous" are
some of the comments we receive every year from friends and family about our beautifully landscaped property. This
has been a great investment in the value of our property.  Thank you Carol and Dave for creating our outdoor spaces
that we continue to enjoy year after year.   Carrie and Cris L. - New Canaan

Carol .... I wanted to tell you how beautiful everything looks.  David and the guys were just a pleasure to have on our property, they were outstanding workers, so neat, clean and genuinely nice people.  We are just thrilled with the pool planting beds and ... Bill is so excited with his birthday present - planting the perfect shade garden for his birdhouse. Your team did a great job!  Thank you.    Kathy and Bill J. - New Canaan
When we recently moved into our home, the property hadn't been properly taken care of for over three years. With dead trees, overgrown shrubs and an overall unruly mess, we knew the first order of business would be to hire a landscape design team.  Carol and Dave of Living Designs , with their roll-up their sleeves, can-do attitudes, presented us with a design and proposal ... we were quickly won over.  We were
pleasantly surprised to learn that once the designs had been approved, they could complete the project in
a week.  They absolutely delivered on that promise and came in at the estimated cost.  They have been
partners with us throughout the entire process making sure that we were happy every step of the way.
We are now maintaining our property using their helpful guidance and know that we'll be using them in
the near future for more projects.  We would highly recommend this brother and sister team for any
project, big or small.  Jessica and Justin C.  New Canaan
Carol and Dave came to us through a friend's recommendation and we couldn't be happier.  We have been
in our home in Darien for over ten years on a beautiful piece of property that had never been properly
cared for.  From our first meeting, which thoughtfully lasted two hours just wandering around our yard,
they took a heartfelt approach to making thoughtful changes.  Most impressive, there was never pressure
to purchase new plantings but they transformed our property taking plantings out, moving perennials and
adding additional pieces.  They have an incredible eye and great design and have a very sincere passion
for every project.  They are wonderul to work with and delightful to have around.  I would highly recommend Carol and Dave and we look forward to our next project.   Joanne and Bob P. - Darien
Carol and Dave - You have done a wonderful job at our home.  You really grasped the potential of our
property in a way that no one has done before.  You listened to what we said, took our wishes into
account and did a masterful job executing the agreed upon plan.  In the process, you have succeeded
in transforming our landscape into a work of beauty.
This is just a start.  We look forward to having you do the same on the rest of our property -- and to
working with you in the seasons to come.  Thanks again!   Jane and Jim C. - Wilton
Your work is superb! Mike and I  are so impressed with your designs, execution and follow up.
Your crew was a delight to work with and their professionalism and attention to detail was
outstanding and so appreciated.  Thank you so much for being the one calm, in control and pleasant 
contractor we have had during this major renovation.  We look forward to working with you in the near 
future and  thank you again for a wonderful  job well done.   Pat and Mike W. - New Canaan
