Roxy recently came up with a design for our front yard. She is amazing! My husband and I were really impressed at how she was able to make the most of our small front yard. She listened to all of our concerns and knew instantly what our personalities were like. She knew I liked a more modern look and that I would not want to have a design that would require a lot of maintenance. On top of knowing her stuff, she is very professional. She always arrived on time to our appointments and would return calls promptly. Roxy is a true gem. Her passion and desire to provide the best services possible are clearly evident. I would without a doubt recommend her.

My husband and I contracted with Roxy to design a complete re-landscaping of our backyard. She worked with us until we were satisfied. Given the scope of our project, we realized at this point that, even with detailed plans, including extensive notes for the landscaper, it was unlikely to be justly implemented without Roxy’s further participation. We therefore extended our contract with Roxy on an hourly basis, and assigned to her the task of selecting plants, rocks, and other materials, and to oversee the landscaping contractor. We discovered in this whole process that with Roxy, we were working with a real artist. She attended to details that never would have occurred to us, and we were able to make minor alterations in the design that wouldn’t have happened without her involvement.
During the construction stage, we had many visitors who commented on the talents of our designer. We are completely happy with the final result, and we get constant compliments from people who come to our house.

Roxy, thanks for helping me design my front yard and I am glad to have gotten rid of the lawn. Not having to mow the lawn plus saving a lot of water. I get a lot of compliments from my neighbors and they love the rare exotic looking plants. Every morning I pour myself a cup of coffee and sit in my front courtyard enjoying the sun and my beautiful garden.

Roxy, you rock! You’ve delivered what you said, “a family-friendly backyard” and stayed within our limited budget. With your water saving landscaping tips, your creativity – we now have a Xeriscape landscaping with a low maintenance yard and drought tolerant plants that bloom year round. You were so right on saving money. Our water bills have been cut down to half. It makes me feel good to have a nice yard save water and money. Now we have more time for something important – spending time with my family.

I was completely overwhelmed with planning my outdoor wedding, my main stress was our back yard where the ceremony would take place, it was so plain! I was worried that decorations wouldn’t be enough to dress up our plain yard, that’s when a friend suggest that I hire a landscape designer, not only would it beautify the yard for our wedding but it would also be an investment that we could enjoy for a long time. After some research, I came upon Singing Gardens and decided to give Roxanne a call. From the start Roxanne was kind and helpful, she also sounded enthusiastic about helping me make my special day perfect!
Although I had a general idea of what I wanted, I had trouble articulating it through words. She was able to make the perfect plan! She was knowledgeable and full of ideas. Roxanne captured my ideas extremely well and executed it flawlessly. Not only did she transform our yard, she also gave me some advice and ideas for my DIY wedding! Roxanne truly went above and beyond in helping us make our special day beautiful and wonderful! I couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks Roxanne we’re still enjoying your masterpiece! :D

Roxy created for us a beautiful Asian Inspired themed back yard ---- one that we had envisioned for many years. From design, to help with contractors, to plant selection and placement, every phase of the project went smoothly. We now enjoy our unique, low maintenance yard more than we have for years.

We have never worked with anyone who took a more personal interest in our lifestyle and in what would be most satisfying to us. Roxanne (Roxy) never lacked for new ideas and handcrafts that will continue to make our property the most unique in our area. She became much more than a contracted landscape designer. Roxy became a friend whose only goal was to turn a rather ordinary looking property into something that is continually bringing compliments to us from our neighbors and friends. We know that the property has increased in value considerably because of her work and attention to even the minutest detail.
Roxy, you are so good at noticing every little detail–things that I would never have thought of, but things that just make the whole project wonderful. Your design and contractor’s careful work has truly transformed our house and outdoors into something we couldn’t have even dreamed of. Roger and I were just overwhelmed with the beautiful scrapbook of our project….The scrapbook will always be a treasure, and we thank you ever so much. You truly have a beautiful gift of creativity.

We are SO grateful for all your help in creating such a beautiful peaceful environment!!! Now the yard is so beautiful, we are very proud of the outcome. It is now as it should be a peaceful, serene happy place.
The Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar is such a gorgeous tree and we are so glad you gave us the option of a more mature plant — it is perfect. Thank you so much, Roxy! You are indeed a truly creative spirit and I am so pleased you were the chosen one to create this amazing masterpiece for us. Thank you again for your wonderful ideas and for the way it now looks. We absolutely love it.

I hired Roxy and her firm to provide design assistance with both a backyard and front yard, all to be finished before my daughter’s wedding, just a few weeks away. While I was completely naive and unrealistic about the process, Roxy helped me adjust my expectations and provided landscape sources for initial plants that she used to ‘stage’ both my front and back yards in time for the wedding.
We will be able to use all the plants in the permanent plan Roxy suggested for a river of rock and succulents in the front yard. She even went beyond the call of duty and provided some furnishings for the rehearsal dinner in the back yard and someone to do all the plantings! I couldn’t have asked for a better result and would recommend Roxy’s firm to anyone who is looking for creative and responsive landscape design services.
