"Joanna and her crew have done garden work for me several times in the past two or three years. She is now my GO-TO when I need to spruce up my garden space or need ideas for a more pleasing design. I was referred to her by a neighbor and, in turn, referred her to my next door neighbor, who could not say enough about her expertise. Joanna is very easy to work with, is knowledgeable about plants and bushes and has a great eye for placement and design. She has always sought to get the best prices available for plants, mulch, and railroad ties etc. Her crew is hard working, very detailed and they clean up well after a job. This year I plan to have Joanna continue to tidy and tweak my garden design".

"After a major renovation to my home that left all of my landscaping destroyed, I asked Joanna Kelly to design new gardens for me. I am not known for my green thumb and gave Joanna some vague guidelines for what I was hoping to create, with the added necessity that the gardens be deer resistant. Joanna created a gorgeous, easy to maintain garden that is an endless source of compliments. People will even tell me they slow down as they drive past my home to take a look! Joanna and her crew are a pleasure to work with-neat and respectful of the property, reliable and a great value for a substantial project. They continue to maintain the front gardens for me and have added smaller projects around the house as time has gone by. I would highly recommend Joanna, and have, to anyone with a gardening project large or small".

"Joanna designed a beautiful garden for us. She incorporated just the right specimens to provide lasting color all spring, summer and fall. And everything is deer proof and low maintenance! Just what we wanted. Thanks Joanna!"

"Joanna Kelly and her team have been invaluable in enhancing and maintaining my large front-yard garden. Joanna has a wonderful sense of design, and is very knowledgeable about horticulture. In addition to her creativity, Joanna is responsive, professional and reliable. I regularly receive compliments from neighbors about my garden, which is due to Joanna's talents and attention. I recommend Joanna Kelly Garden Design without reservation."

" I'm happy to say that I began working with Joanna very soon after she started her business and I am still calling on her when I need help. She converted an uninteresting bed into a lovely garden, complete with pond and fountain...her first...and still going strong. She has also met the challenge of shade and deer. She is upbeat and reliable. What more could you ask?

We met Joanna Kelly at a home and garden show and really liked her display. We asked her to completely replant the beds in front of our home. The results are incredible. Joanna's talent is obvious. Her suggestions were fresh and interesting as she guided us through the planning process. Her crew was professional, courteous, and efficient. The front of our home looks great and we couldn't be happier. We give Joanna five stars and highly recommend her for all garden needs.

"I met Joanna at the Timonium Home and Garden Show in 2012. Tired of the 'big boys' I was looking for someone who was small,
personable and could create intimate gardens that would tell a story. That's Joanna!! Her ideas are stimulating and creative. Her computerized drawings are on point! I'm EXCITED about working with her again this year. The SNOW has got to GO!!"
"When I first met Joanna she said she wanted to create a garden that will have no maintenance 'no weeds' and be a space for rest, relaxation, enjoyment and also a venue for my husband's sculpture at an open studio tour. We are very pleased with our Zen garden; for me, this was exactly what I was striving for. A space to contemplate and not work so hard with it's maintenance.
Joanna, is experienced and has a 'can do' work ethic. Her crew is very good at planting, carrying out the designs created by Joanna and successfully handling situations that present themselves in the landscaping process. The follow up and detailing until completion of the project is another positive quality of Joanna Kelly Garden Design. We are very grateful for this Zen Garden and the space has enhanced our property. Thank you Joanna and crew. We love it !"
