Louisville landscape design firm, B&,A, creates gardens that are the embodiment of our design aesthetic—beautiful, functional, and sustainable. The company’s work has been featured in publications including CNN, Garden Design, Town &, Country, and Architectural Digest. It’s a combination of creative flair, technical knowledge, and attention to detail.
The result is gardens that not only look great, but perform exceptionally well. That’s why over 25,000 homeowners have chosen B&,A as their garden partner. Our approach is thoughtful, forward-thinking, and sustainable—delivering a great, beautiful garden that lasts long after our clients have moved on.
Gardens are a big investment. But it’s worth it to us to create a garden that is not only beautiful and functional, but also something our clients will enjoy for years to come.
Let’s start with a peek into our design process. It’s something I’ve always been curious about.
I got interested in B&,A after I started working at Garden Design magazine. I was tasked with putting together design projects in our “best of” issue. The magazine had never done a garden magazine before, and I had a lot of fun exploring what makes B&,A garden designs so different. When I came to the realization that we were the best company in the Louisville area for creating beautiful gardens, I knew I wanted to join B&,A.
What do you love most about working with clients?
The client is at the heart of everything we do. It all starts with a conversation with the client.
I love to get to know my clients, and it’s the greatest part of my job. From what we find out about their family, to where they live, to how they like to spend their time, there is a lot to take in. From there, we can begin to build a garden that best fits their needs.
It’s important that each client gets what they want, and we work to create something they will love for years to come.
One of my favorite parts of my job is designing their dream garden. We start with their vision. I often have clients from across the globe, and the common thread in all of their gardens is their love of gardening. We bring our design talents to the table and help them see their vision for their garden come to life.
We’re working on some exciting new gardens in our portfolio. Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration can come from a range of places. I love exploring different types of plants and gardening styles. I love the beauty of flowers, the textures of foliage, the design and artistry of gardens. All of those things inspire me.
I’m always searching for the new plant to bring to the table, or trying a new way to garden. In my spare time, I garden, and it keeps me in touch with plants and the seasons. I’ve gardened for a long time, and I am always looking to learn more.
Do you have any tips for new gardeners?
Do what feels right to you! I’ve found that gardening has been a passion of mine for a very long time, and I’ve gardened for many different reasons. Every new gardener has their own style. I try to keep in touch with the seasons and have fun in the garden.
As a designer, you have to be constantly learning, and I try to embrace each new challenge.
I also love working with new and seasoned gardeners. I think it’s always good to be reminded of what worked before, and how to make your garden better.
What is the most rewarding thing about your work?
The most rewarding thing about my work is helping my clients tell their stories, and showing them how to do their own gardening. When they see how their gardens have changed from year to year, they are amazed. Every year they are learning and discovering new ways to garden, and I can’t wait to show them the next change.
Do you have a favorite tool/piece of equipment in your workspace?
My favorite tool is a pen and paper. I sketch a lot, so it is just easier to take notes and sketch at the same time. I’m also a big fan of using a garden journal, especially during spring.
I am never without a camera. I use it to capture the beauty of the garden, and share it with clients. I also use it for inspiration.
What is your favorite gardening book?
I love The Practical Encyclopedia of Vegetable Gardening, by Alan Savory. There’s so much information in that book, I feel like I could get everything I need to garden and learn from it.
What book is your absolute favorite?
There is so much to read about gardening and landscape design. I am always on the lookout for new resources, and new books to read.Saya merekomendasikan banyak buku kepada klien, dan berharap mereka terus tumbuh dan menjadi inspirasi bagi orang lain.
Apakah Anda memiliki ritual atau rutinitas khusus sebelum Anda sampai di studio Anda?
Beberapa minggu sebelum saya mulai bekerja, saya duduk di kebun saya. Ini sangat menginspirasi, dan memberi saya sedikit waktu untuk menjernihkan pikiran dan mengumpulkan pikiran saya untuk hari itu. Saya merasa seperti saya tidak tahu apa yang akan saya lihat, atau bagaimana desainnya akan menyatu.
Buku apa yang harus dibaca tukang kebun lain?
Saya sangat merekomendasikan ensiklopedia praktis berkebun sayuran oleh Alan Savory. Ini adalah ensiklopedis, buku referensi dengan citra yang indah.
Buku mana yang menginspirasi Anda dalam karya desain Anda?
Buku The Small World oleh David Sedaris telah menjadi inspirasi besar bagi saya. Saya suka memikirkan berkebun dengan cara yang sama, mengambil sesuatu yang kecil, dan membuatnya indah. Ini telah menjadi sumber kesenangan bagi saya.
Kami dengan senang hati mengumumkan bahwa kami telah merasa terhormat dengan pick Award editor dari Gardenscapes Magazine untuk edisi ini!
Majalah, dengan staf editorial yang terdiri dari para profesional dari sekitar AS dan Kanada, telah menerbitkan sejak tahun 2003, memberikan tukang kebun dari semua tingkatan tempat untuk menemukan dan belajar tentang praktik dan teknologi terbaik dalam desain dan pemeliharaan taman.
Ini adalah masalah besar bagi kami, dan bukti kerja keras semua orang di Studio Gardenworks yang memungkinkan publikasi majalah yang luar biasa ini.
