Landscape Designer

About the designer

Sharon received her training in Richmond, Virginia in the form of private tutoring by a leading East Coat architect. While living there for 8 years, she worked on many historical estates, restoring and renovating gardens. One estate was used by Robert E. Lee’s men as an arsenal during the Civil War and the cannons Lee’s men used are still there today. Many of these gardens are a blend of true old world style with a little southern flavor mixed in.

Being a true Texan at heart, Sharon returned to Texas in 1994 and created gardens in Tyler and the Texas Hill Country for her client’s enjoyment. In 2014 while traveling to East Texas to design landscaping for a new subdivision in Longview, Tyler captured her heart. So, she packed up and moved her landscape design business here and looking forward to creating many beautiful landscaping design plans for residential and commercial projects in East Texas.
