Artistic Landscaping redesigned the landscaping in the front of our house with new walkways and steps, and all new shrubs and trees. The owner Susan is fun to work with and very creative and knowledgable. She included us in the design and plant selection process and created a beautiful landscaping plan. The work was done promptly and on time. Once the completed, Susan continued to come by to ensure that our plantings were doing well. I highly recommend this company!

Susan did a fantastic job landscaping our front, back and side yards. She turned a very dreary landscape into beautiful gardens. She presents her design ideas after spending a lot of time evaluating the setting, the land and discussion with clients. Susan chooses hard workers and skilled masons to work with and is a constant presence during the installation. She has a great eye for beauty and solid knowledge of what plantings will thrive. Susan goes the extra mile and is a real pleasure to work with!

We have had several landscapers do our home and Artistic Landscaping is the only one who designed it for our home and our taste. We could not be more thrilled with our completed project and will be doing many more projects with Artistic Landscaping. I highly recommend this company and Susan Manna the owner and designer.

Susan substantially exceeded our expectations.
She considered our budget, our lifestyle, our neighborhood, and even our deer! She uses the right subcontractors for the right job. She converted a “war zone” into one of the nicest vignettes in our nice neighborhood!

Susan is a very talented and thoughtful landscape designer. She creates beauty for your home while being mindful of your budget. She is not afraid of a challenge and her designs are thorough and multilayered with imagination and “out of the box” ideas. In addition to creating beautiful gardens, Susan has taught me that an integral part of landscaping includes the masonry or “hardscaping” outside of a house. What a difference my new front steps and walkway have made! Susan works with terrific masons and together they have created a truly beautiful exterior for the front of my home. I look forward to working with Susan and crew again for my backyard!

Working with Susan was a pleasure from beginning to end. She took the time to listen to my needs and ideas. I wanted a garden that featured perennials and had year round interest. She took the time to design a garden plan and review her ideas prior to planting. The plan utilized plants that were native to our area, provided year round color, and she did not use the run of the mill plants you see so often utilized by so many other landscapers. Her plan took careful consideration to the mature size of the plants, ensuring beauty for years to come. She also very carefully selected plants that complement each other as well as the color of our home. We were so happy with Susan’s work we are now starting the third phase of our project this spring and look forward to results as amazing as the other projects.

My husband and I hired Susan Manna to design and install our landscape three years ago. Susan did an incredible job from start to finish on guiding us through the re-landscaping of our home. She listened to what are needs were and came up with a beautiful design. One particular aspect I requested was bringing nature back to our yard. Today I when I look out my window I hear the birds chirping on the trees she planted and see many types of butterflies circling the plants. It really is all that I dreamt of, especially since the property was void of any charm before the installation.

On completion, Susan made sure we were happy with the results and still stops by to check on us. Our landscaping has stayed beautiful year after year, and to this day people still stop and comment on how beautiful our front yard looks.

Susan is the best. She listens to your ideas and brings them to fruition with her own special creative design. I call it landscaping alchemy. My house shines with the new landscaping and while you notice the beauty of the plantings, the house has been newly revealed. I couldn’t be happier.

The other thing that I love about her is that she uses your “old” plantings and doesn’t just throw them out. She re-envisions a better spot for them and you look at them and think… why didn’t I see that? Of course, that’s why you hire Susan. She sees the vision. Call her. You won’t be disappointed.
