What our clients are saying about us

“I love my new garden! I think it is exquisite, and the new maple tree is a beauty. I love its little star-shaped leaves, and I love looking down out my bedroom window at it. It was amazing to come home from work and find such a lovely little dream garden in front of my house. Thank you!” ~ Marcia F. Back Bay, Boston

“Looking out our kitchen window is like looking at an ever-changing work of art. Christie’s attention to detail was superb, and the final execution shows her talent.” ~ Carolyn P. Brookline

“Everything was lovely and everyone RAVED about my garden. Even the real ‘tough customers’ were audibly impressed. Really, everyone loved how it looked and felt; the pergola was a HUGE hit. Once again, I could not be happier. Everything was beautiful.” ~ Abbie C. Newton

“They (the construction company hired by the homeowner) did a great job on the yard. We followed all your suggestions. It’s a transformation. Thanks for your ideas and support.” ~ Bram S. Brookline

“… And every time I’m outside I find myself marveling at the variety of colors and textures the new plantings have. Thanks!” ~ Mark D. Boston

“If your ears glowed every time you and your garden design are complimented, you’d be a perpetual bright pink. From every window and angle, your design is glorious — we are delighted and thrilled with this beautiful, very peaceful space.
It was such a pleasure working with you, as you dreamt up this design and then brought it to life.” ~ Suzanne and David L. Lexington

“Christie Dustman’s team comes early in the morning to work their handicraft on my trees and shrubs. When they are done, my plantings look more alive, more colorful, and more healthy. They are trimmed yet still maintain a natural look.” ~ Loren C. R. Brookline

“What makes me happy? My yard! Thank you!” ~ Meg W. Roslindale

“You have been just great —not just in your artistic vision for the whole project but by being very responsive and supportive as well.” ~ Maryann T. Brighton

“Friends highly recommended Christie to us, but our own experience in working with her exceeded all of our expectations. She listens carefully, offers creative solutions, and approaches each project with both professional expertise and personal commitment.” ~ Carolyn P. Brookline

“Christie Dustman & Company Inc. does a wonderful job in keeping my clients’ gardens looking great year after year. Their knowledge of plants is impressive and their pruning techniques are impeccable. It relieves me to know my clients’ gardens are being well taken care of.” ~ Laurie Fitzgerald owner of Waterwise Gardens

“Our Back Bay garden had an overabundance of specimen plantings, beautiful but extremely crowded. Christie was able to cull and prune the garden with clear-eyed expertise, never losing sight of simplifying the garden, and enhancing the view of the building that it graced.” ~ Kathleen Lehmann
