"...nature
is but another name for
      health"

Kimberly Lock and Ann Laughlin know that they were destined to meet and forge a lasting friendship that would lead to the inevitable start-up of Eco-Chic Gardens, LLC.

When they first met on Temple University's Ambler Campus in 2001, they discovered that each had resigned from a successful corporate career to pursue a degree in horticulture. They shared classes, and worked together in numerous campus organizations and volunteer projects.

On a beautiful fall day in 2006, while working in Stephanie Cohen's (The Perennial Diva) garden in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, they realized that their mutual love for plants and working together in a garden added immeasurable happiness and wellness to their lives. Having had that revelation, the women were inspired to dream of forming a landscape contracting business that would offer only the finest horticultural services and so, it began.

Our Philosophy:
Eco-Chic Gardens, LLC is dedicated to the beautification and ecologically responsible stewardship of the urban forest. We are committed to the utilization of bio-diverse and sustainable landscape practices, thus promoting a sophisticated and healthy outdoor lifestyle for our clients in their living, working, and recreational environments.

GET STARTED

If you are interested in getting started please help us by filling out this quick Questionnaire.

So here's how we work:

First, we meet with you to understand your desires and your property. A personal survey and site analysis provides us with the information we need to develop a conceptual plan. Then we meet to discuss our concepts and finalize your design.

Second, with a plan in place and a scheduled time to start, we begin site preparation. This involves layout of functional spaces, beds, borders, and soil preparation. We use culturally appropriate horticultural practices and earth-friendly products throughout the process.

Third, any grading, construction and planting begin. We ensure quality control and professional performance in all aspects of work. After our job is complete, we take the time to make sure that you are completely satisfied and that any questions are answered.

Lastly, a great landscape needs ongoing maintenance and TLC. Eco-Chic Gardens provides comprehensive plant healthcare services that can be tailored to meet your needs.

Just a note to say how much we appreciate the work you've done on our yard.
