" Jane Luce is the first landscape designer I have met who has both the artistic eye and knowledge of plants and stonework to help me bring my Garden of Eden to fruition.
Jane has helped me design and install a Japanese hillside garden with a 40 foot rock river, a spa with a waterfall surrounded by a rock garden, an outdoor kitchen design including all counter and appliance specifications, a large vegetable garden with rock walls, and the plantings of several large beds around Koi ponds and a conifer garden.
Her ability to quickly produce 3D pen & ink sketches to scale or photo-shop actual trees/plants or whole outdoor rooms onto an actual picture of my backyard takes all the risk out of making sure you get what you want.
Her formal art education and ability also provides an excellent eye for integrating color, texture, and architectural form throughout the landscape design. She is the best choice for anyone who is looking to install an extraordinary sanctuary at their home.
She is easy to work with, has great attention to detail, and will see every phase through from conceptual design to project completion.
There is no reason to go anywhere else for exceptional and unique landscape design as well as quality customer service."

TRANSFORMING AN EXISTING POOL
BY ADDING AN BEAUTIFULLY LANDSCAPED WATERFALL & SPA
THE ART OF LANDSCAPE
A Transformation Beyond our Dreams !
We live on a beautiful wooded knoll, high
above a watershed creek winding it's way to the
Potomac River. It is a gorgeous home site, but we had
very little space to entertain or hang out outdoors comfortably, so we hired Jane Luce, as
our designer, to help us create the outdoor living space we wanted, .... without losing any
of the wonderful wild beauty that attracted us to live here.
We loved working with Jane, because she has wonderful artistic vision grounded with her
long practical experience from 15 years of project installations. Since she has such a deep
passion and commitment to her work, she constantly exceeded our expectations every step
of the way... from the design process, all the way through the big dramatic install. Coming
home each day, it was exciting to see the project progress and the landscape literally
changing before our eyes. Then it all came together so beautifully in the end with all of
Jane's inspiration, passion and dedication to bring it to life
In fact, with our beautiful waterfall and stone terracing we have created the perfect
habitat for us and all our favorite creatures too as attested to by the greater diversity of
wild creatures that now live here with us. And we get to enjoy them much more "up close
and personal " now. There are more birds, butterflies, dragonflies, blue tailed skinks,
tadpoles, and frogs....
It's a real ' You build it, they will come ' story ....
Our home is literally humming with life now,
..... theirs and ours ....
and we absolutely love it! "

" Jane is a creative force....
who listens well and draws on her skills
as an accomplished artist and designer to help
her clients realize their dreams.
Her patience and persistence leaves no detail unattended,
resulting in the kind of personalized product that is distinctive
and appropriate to the setting.
We continue to get many compliments on her design
for the landscape & entrance to our new home.
We are pleased to have been one of her clients
....... and have highly recommended her to others."
