┬ęcopyright 2017 Eco-Chic Gardens. site design by Dutch Huff


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.
