“Hiring Green Velvet Gardens to design and install over 1,000 square feet of new gardens is one of the best things we ever did. In fact we will contract with them again to design and build some retaining walls and the gardens they will support. Nancy and Janice are extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Cape Cod gardens and the plants that really work there. They also gave us a design that is in keeping with the amount of maintenance work we are willing to do. Their prices were extremely reasonable given how much time they spent on our project. Their crew was very diligent and hard working as well. We highly recommend them.”
-Bill and Aubrey in East Falmouth, MA

“The Green Velvet folks were wonderful.. Very smart and thoughtful, as they checked out our existing plantings and helped us figure out what to move where. They were clear and decisive; they were able to visualize how our plants (with a few additions) could work and look better. We ended the consultation with a plan that made sense to us, saved us money (as we could move existing shrubs), and helped us with the overall plan of our front garden. As the seasons have passed, we continue to be very pleased with Janice and Nancy’s suggestions – the fall color and winter interest are excellent. Can’t wait for spring! Thanks for helping us figure out these garden beds!”

“We all know that taking on a major landscaping project is a difficult task unless you work with the
right people to be knowledgeable, get the details right, communicate, give you a fair price and in the end – come out
with exactly what you envisioned. This is why we chose Green Velvet Gardens.

Our project involved totally redoing our front walk and stairs, putting in a new lawn and relandscaping all the
garden beds. They chose an incredible stone mason who did a superb job on a design that
we put together and was not easy to do. Nancy and Jan give us a total plan with recommendations of which plants
would be appropriate based on what we needed to buy and what we could salvage. And the sod they chose for
our lawn was perfect as well as all the plant choices.

In the end, we could not have been more pleased. They were both a pleasure to work with and three years later,
it still looks great and our lawn is the envy of the neighborhood! We highly recommend this company and
would use them again in a heartbeat!”

See you in the spring….

“We inherited a run down garden that needed a major overhaul, but we had no idea where to begin. Nancy and Janice created a stunning garden for us that is now the nicest one on the block. Their new design incorporated many of our old plants moved into new homes. Their work amazed us and it was well worth hiring them to get the most bang for our buck.”

“I have been a client (and now friend) of Janice and Nancy’s for several years. Our relationship began after I visited Jan’s home and admired her own work in her garden. I wanted a garden that would look as natural and lush as her garden. Working as Green Velvet Gardens they initially came to my home in Chestnut Hill and provided a long-range plan to update, enhance and rearrange existing landscaping. They listened very carefully to my desire for a green and white palette, lush shrubbery and plants which would blend smoothly into a very natural setting and, year by year, have helped me to achieve my goals. They are always on site and hands on, ready to answer my questions and make suggestions. I look forward each spring to the day they arrive, note pads in hand and walk with me to review the health and appearance of my plants. Using the long-range plan, they recommend additions of new plant material and relocation of existing plant material. They are respectful of my budget and my opinions. Jan and Nancy have planted containers for me each spring and helped me select and position a stone bench. Ask them about the amazing orb-shaped fountain which they scouted for me and our experience measuring, photographing and ultimately selecting and placing that fountain in my backyard. ”
