Welcome To the Valentine-Gardening website

Valentine-Gardening is committed to making a positive impact on the environment by creating and enhancing landscapes with native plant species that support a diversity of wildlife. It is owned by Louise Volintine, a professional garden designer and gardening coach in Arlington, VA, and serves northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.

At Valentine-Gardening, we believe in using native plants and sustainable gardening practices to enhance your garden. Our naturalistic garden designs are beautiful, ecologically sound, and require very little upkeep once established. With something always in bloom or fruit, your garden will be an ever-changing kaleidescope of color, texture, form, and light.

Please note that I am no longer accepting new clients for design work. I am available on a limited basis for design work and garden coaching for existing clients only.
