I NOW HAVE A GARDEN THAT PEOPLE ARE CONSTANTLY ADMIRING.

Leslie and her crew have created order out of garden chaos. I inherited a garden which had a lot of potential, but was a jungle of plants. Because of the horticultural knowledge of the individuals who make up this company, I now have a garden that people are constantly admiring. I am amazed at how hard the crew members work to produce the orderliness that exists. I can now relax and enjoy my garden because of the expertise and support provided by LH Gardens!

The crew is hardworking, knowledgable, and pleasant to have around our home. I really appreciate the regular and responsive communication with Leslie and her staff.

MY HAT IS OFF TO YOU!!

I just have to tell you how wonderful your garden is. You expect a gorgeous garden in stately English homes, Italian villas, etc. But it is to me especially delightful to see what one dedicated homeowner can do in a relatively small space. My hat is off to you!!

- Donna Ernest, Periwinkle Cottage, Charlottesville

 

YOU ARE HIGH UP ON A GARDENING PEDESTAL

I just want you to know that you are high up on a gardening pedestal. Not as an urn , but as a Greek or Roman goddess with her valiant Ginny by her side!

I have never seen garden workers like your crew! They are not only individually highly skilled but they are energetic—honey bees on steroids! So the whole operation is highly productive!

SHE KEEPS THE CLIENT'S WISHES IN MIND

Leslie Harris is the wonderful woman who has been keeping the garden looking better than I ever could.  Among her many strengths are a strong design sense that also enables her to keep the client's wishes in mind, a knowledge of plant materials and care, and a marvelous disposition. Although she isn't inexpensive, she will tailor her offerings to as much or as little as you need/want.

- Jim Wootton, Charlottesville

 

ENTHUSIASTIC, HARD WORKING AND INSPIRED

Leslie was an enthusiastic, hard working and inspired student with a good eye for design, deep knowledge of horticulture. She understands the relevance of garden design traditions of today's landscapes, large and small. 

- Lucy Kenyon, MLA, University of Virginia, Instructor, New York Botanical Gardens, Thomas Balsley Associates. 

 

A TRUE GARDENING POWERHOUSE

In the past ten years I haven't met anyone as hardworking, diligent and passionate about gardening as Leslie. It was a great pleasure having her as part of our team. She is a true gardening powerhouse and with her smile she's sure to win hearts and transform gardens!

- Cora Burnham, Owner of Sanctuary Garden Design, Greenwich, Connecticut

 

LESLIE HARRIS IS A MIRACLE WORKER.  

Through a lot of hard work and perseverance, she was able to transform two, very overgrown and thus overcrowded, beds back to health and beauty.  Not only did she pull weeds (despite being allergic to poison ivy), trim bushes and stake up leggy flowers but she even added lovely plantings from her own vast and vibrant garden.  Leslie also took the time to show my husband and me how to tend our gangly, unkempt azaleas, boxwoods and rhododendron. Needless to say, our place has never looked so good!

- Page and Doug Easter, Charlottesville
