Everett Garden Designs creates gardens recognized for their clarity of vision and clean lines, accented with detailed planting plans that are effective throughout the seasons.
In our designs, Everett Garden Designs works to pay heed to a home’s architecture while expressing its heart. Our aim is to establish a strong visual relationship between interior and exterior space so there is a natural flow, both physically and aesthetically. To that end, Everett Garden Designs is experienced working with interior decorators, builders and architects to achieve that unity.
When designs are built, Everett Garden Designs works with a select group of artisans, masons, contractors, carpenters, horticulturalists, welders, irrigation, and lighting specialists, with whom we collaborate to ensure that the construction of the garden is smooth, seamless and executed as intended.
The result is a garden that expands the use and appeal of your home, increases its value, and adds joy to life.
Kathryn Everett, Principal and Owner
After earning a BA and BS in English and Mass Communications at Virginia Commonwealth University, Kathryn worked for a decade in the advertising business. Looking for more fulfillment, but unsure of her direction, she took a year off to explore various interests, and found her calling in creating gardens.
After receiving her post-graduate degree from George Washington University’s Landscape Design Program, Kathryn worked with a design/build firm for several years before setting up her own firm. She brings an analytical design approach, a vast knowledge of plants, and an ecological sensitivity to her practice.
Her background in business, client relations and production management has proved a useful and solid foundation for building gardens. Kathryn’s passion and driving force is the opportunity to build relationships with her clients that allow her to re-imagine and create beautiful spaces for them that bring them happiness and satisfaction.
