“Diane has worked on 4 separate landscape projects for me in the past 18 years. She brought new eyes and creativity to each project. After listening carefully to what was important to me, Diane has added immense value to my property by enhancing the landscape as well as created a beautiful outdoor space to take through and be in. The landscape is designed for low maintenance and to increase and holds its beauty over time. The whimsy and subtle touches, along with use of interesting plants and materials turn into a unique composition. I definitely recommend Diane for your next landscape project.”
“I wanted to re-do my backyard and had a good idea of what I wanted. Diane understood immediately and translated it into something even better than I had imagined. She really has a gift for visualizing the finished products and what it takes to get there. She oversees the job herself and is very reachable all through the process. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“We loved working with Diane for the landscaping at our rental property. She listened to our ideas, provided excellent recommendations, and came up with a creative plan. Two years later, the plants have all grown in and we love the front and back yards look.”

“DM Designs has more than met our expectations in designing the landscaping for two separate homes!
The DM Design team met with us before any drawing of plans. Diane McGill then met with us over the draft plans to share ideas and modify the plans according to our needs!
We were made aware of all potential issues, and knew in advance of the installation schedule. We were kept apprised of how things were progressing and there were no surprises or unexpected complications. The installation crew did great job making on site modifications as issues were discovered in our yard. One of the house designs involves a very complicated walkway installation it was handled very professionally: and the final product was stunning. The DMDesign team listened to our requests and exceeded our expectations. We recommend Diane McGill and her team for your landscaping needs!”

“Diane is a talented, artistic, creative designer who personally helped me pick our my flowers for my garden wedding, she not only decorated the venue with blooming Hydrangeas that I wanted, but she also designed my bouquet and corsages for my attendants and special guests, plus handcrafted the center pieces at the reception.
Diane has an eye for beauty. She’s also very practical, and can work with your budget. She lists intently, ask questions to get a feel for what her clients wants, makes suggestions, gives options, and then comes up with a plan. She regards each wedding, each project, each event as unique because each client to her is unique. I highly recommend Diane. Put her info in your contacts. She is a keeper.”

“Our planning committee initially identified Diane as someone we felt an immediate connection due to her thorough and thoughtful planning process she presented in her proposal. As Diane patiently guided us through each step of the project our respect for her process and excitement of her design increase our anticipation to complete the implementation. The completed project exceeded our community’s collective expectations and desires. This outcome was achieved because of Diane’s passion, knowledge, experience and love for what she does.”

“It has been my pleasure to be a client of DM Design for over 15 years! During that time Diane has designed, implemented and maintained beautiful gardens at my business and home! Diane has the training and creativity to take a space and make into something that is lovely to be in! She created a design that updated the entry stairs and driveway of my business and with the lovely plant and flower design it truly makes me happy to drive up to work each day!
Diane also designed planter boxes in my back yard and created a beautiful little gated garden area that attracts butterflies. Diane is a gifted landscaper and it has always been a pleasure to work with her.”
