Here’s what our customers have to say.

“When we were looking to install a rain garden due to a water drainage issue on our side yard, we were so fortunate to find Lauren’s Garden Service on-line. Lauren responded to us promptly and was out to provide her professional opinion as to what was needed to solve our issue. She provided us with a tasteful and beautifully designed and effective solution to our drainage and erosion issues. It was her website where we learned about rain gardens and the county’s program for reimbursement. She was very communicative throughout the process. Lauren solved our problem and saved us money while providing us with warm, friendly service. Her team is amazing – they work hard. Her garden service goes beyond rain gardens. Our next project will be to mulch other areas in our yard. In the spring time, we will reach out to her for a design in our front yard around our front stairs. Look no further – you will love the experience!”

Lauren and her crew were great. I had a basic idea of what I wanted done and relied on Lauren and her expertise to put into place. It was nice to come home from work and see a complete change. I would definitely use Lauren again and refer her to anyone who asks.

“Lauren’s Garden Service is already on the vendor suggestion list for the Howard County Watershed Stewards Academy, and I would certainly personally recommend this service. I have also shared this recommendation with Meg Boyd, Howard County Conservancy.”

We hired Lauren’s Gardens to remove and replace an existing brick walkway, and the results far surpassed our vision for the front of our house! Lauren was a pleasure to work with. She respected our existing gardens and suggested plantings that would not only compliment, but blend as well. We love her final design of two walkways, and are amazed at the “before and after”. Lauren’s crew was great as well – they worked hard, were always polite and respectful, cleaned up the site every evening before they left, and finished the work in the expected time frame. Excited to have them return to create a rain garden!
