“Barbara worked with us to redesign and replant the back and side gardens of our 19th century carriage house in Baltimore, including a multi-season cottage/pollinator garden, creating new walkways and sitting areas, and incorporating new plants into an existing mature landscape. Always the professional, she brings a deep knowledge of plants and garden design to a truly exciting and fun collaborative process. She was generous with her time and always available to answer our questions. In addition, we used her preferred contractors for stone work and irrigation, and they all spoke very highly of her, both personally and professionally. We look forward to many years of gardening together. ”
“London Landscapes did an outstanding job working on our backyard to create an outdoor living space which is now our favorite part of the house. Her designs are creative, thoughtful, and reflective of her goal to help clients transform a space to meet their specific needs. My wife and I could not recommend her more highly.”

“Personable, expert, high integrity, creative, on time, good value and great results – Barbara scores highly on all of these dimensions. We moved into a house that is really oversized for the lot that it’s on, and furthermore it sticks out into a three way intersection. Barbara was referred to us by a decorator. We asked her to help us soften the mass of this house with new soft and hardscape. We also asked if there was any way to put a pool in our not very large back yard without taking over the entire yard. I think she may have taken on this work for the sheer challenge! She did both of these things and exceeded all our expectations. We love the perennials that she has chosen, and the oasis that she has created in our yard. I am not adept at gardening and don’t have time for a lot of maintenance, and yet this yard just keeps on giving. We love it. Furthermore, we love Barbara. She is such a pleasure to work with and I now count her as a friend.”

“London Landscapes has been our landscape architect for 22 years at our home in Chevy Chase. They have designed our property through multiple phases, gradually turning a neglected lot into a showpiece featured on garden tours. They did a wonderful job with the gardens but also with terraces, patios, planting beds, a pergola and a fish pond. They are very responsive and also quite cost-effective compared to bigger outfits.“

“Working with Barbara was an extraordinarily wonderful experience, and I think it may be a tie between how beautiful the garden she created for me looks and how much I loved working with her. Her incredible creativity, warmth, and kindness along with the ease of working with her makes me love not only my garden but my memory of creating it. Barbara has also been available for any follow-up questions and plantings that I have requested. I can’t imagine a stronger recommendation than I can give for Barbara. Feel free to join the many who stop by front my yard to admire my garden.“
