“Jill doesn't just design pools and draw architectural landscapes, she inspires lifestyles and makes dreams come true.  Her creativity, expertise, attention to detail and extensive knowledge enabled her to take our haphazard ideas and create an ideal pool, extensive hardscape, and stunning surrounding living landscape that enhances our life and improves the value of our home.  Her extensive and respected relationships with industry resources and suppliers reduced risks and concerns regarding budget and timelines.” ~ SO

"Jill very successfully executed a brief for the design of my rear yard in Charlottesville. I wanted a low maintenance shade garden with as many native plants as possible. The garden needed to look its best from spring to early summer, and was to be viewed from the elevated rear porch. I would be very happy to show the garden to anyone thinking about doing a similar project with Jill." ~ PT
