Welcome to
Good Earth Gardens!

In 2003, Kara attended the American Nursery and Landscape Association’s January conference to hear the legendary Dutch designer Piet Oudolf speak about gardens.  His lecture would be formative in her evolution as a landscape designer.  

Gardens that are interesting throughout the year are the prime driver of Oudolf’s designs - as can be seen in his famous Chicago Lurie gardens and many others. Her own development toward

this design approach has been Kara’s work

for the past two decades. 

Our philosophy of ‘Carefully Wild’ describes landscapes that are at once exquisitely beautiful, meeting very specific design criteria to function as they are intended to for our clients, while also existing as resilient, stable and sustainable natural environments.
