I am always skeptical of bringing on new workers to my property. Elena was responsive and professional from my initial inquiry. Her work is thorough and I love her initiative to point out issues that may need to be addressed. I feel confident to allow her to work on my property in my absence. Due to my usual non-Covid lifestyle, this is paramount for me! I would highly recommend her company.Dec 1, 2020Verified

If five could be chosen, I would include Value and Punctuality as well. Elena has a vast wealth of botanical knowledge, an advanced aesthetic and a strong, energetic work ethic. She clearly knows and loves gardens, and excels in working in them. Along with her assistant, Olga, she did an exceptional job with our fall garden clean up and pruning, often performing additional work to make everything look just right. Elena has many excellent ideas and is very easy to communicate with. I look forward to her returning in the spring to take stewardship of all our gardens.Nov 26, 2020Verified

Elena is such a pleasure to work with. She is a very talented gardener and has a real passion for her work. She is extremely responsive and communicative, and is quick to make practical recommendations that balance desires and budget. She is also honest and trustworthy. Hire her and you will be thrilled you did!Nov 12, 2020Verified

We can’t say enough wonderful things about Elena and the spectacular job she did on our garden. She transformed a hodge-podge of plants and shrubs into a visually appealing, harmonious balance of color, size, and shape by not only redesigning our existing garden but creating stunning new planters. It was a tall order to fill, and Elena came through with flying colors—we couldn’t be happier with the results. Elena is a real genius when it comes to selecting the right plant for the right spot and knowing what the big picture will look like. She’s a delight to work with, dedicated and hardworking, and a lovely person. We were very sorry when she was done with our garden, such a pleasure it was for us to watch a real pro at work, creating magic. Thank you, Elena—thank you so very much!Oct 23, 2020Verified

Elena was wonderful from consultation, design, helping me pick plants, arranging onsite, and planting. Her attention to detail was amazing and she transformed the front landscaping of our house. Before picture, the front was weed covered and out of control. After is beautiful and sleek. I will be bringing her back in the spring to help us pick a tree for the front lawn and provide upkeep.Sep 23, 2020Verified
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a certificate in Landscape Design from NY Botanical Garden, where I worked as a volunteer for several years. My other experience includes working with several private properties in the NY and RI, as well as designing a garden for the monastery in Russia.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I found my passion in gardening and landscape design when I moved into a brand new house and started transforming my bare surroundings into my dream back yard. I soon realized that I needed professional knowledge to make this dream come true, so I signed up for the NY Botanical Garden's program. There, I not only studied, but volunteered in their numerous gardens and in a few years I received my certificate in landscape design. My passion has lead me to a wonderful career that I hope to pursue for the rest of my life.
