"Larkspur Design has been so wonderful to work with! Seana Cullinan, and everyone at Larkspur Design has done such an amazing job! My yard is so lovely now! They really help me make decisions, and were very receptive to my ideas. They've been coming to work on my yard for about three years. I love that they're always environmentally conscious. I really trust them at my house, and their cost is well worth it."

"We interviewed two other landscapers before hiring Larkspur. The difference was extraordinary. The others offered some shrubs to plant and some mulch but Larkspur came back with a fabulous design for the entire yard and then let us scale it back as we pleased. No pressure at all but I will mention that if Joseph or Seana make a recommendation – take it. I never felt pressure to buy and believe both their interests are truly to walk away and leave something behind you will love. They have passion for this and the knowledge to put it to work. At first the cost seemed about right, but after watching Joseph spend hours laying bluestone just right, or seeing the incredible variety of native plants selected by Seana, it was a bargain. We have all sorts of shapes and textures and colors in the yard now. If you live in the mid-coast Maine area and don’t at least interview Larkspur you are crazy. We love what they did and they obviously love doing what they do."

"We have lived in our field-meets-forest setting for twenty years and have extensive foundation gardens and perimeter plantings. For years we have taken care of it ourselves but our daughter was getting married in our yard and we needed help sprucing up the gardens for the wedding! Seana and her crew breathed new life into the gardens without making them look new. They rearranged, added and removed plants, cleaned up overgrown bushes, and artfully added new front garden bushes and annuals throughout. The plant selections completely fit our goal of a mature, native Maine feel. The color, placement and structure of plant material is pleasing from any window of my home in any season. I love the movement of grasses, the addition of a sweet little tree and the variety of textures through the seasons. Larkspur also solved a wet spot problem by designing and installing a natural stone walkway that gives quiet presence to what was previously a utility looking space. This past summer my garden was healthier than it has been in years and full of bees! Seana and her crew are knowledgeable, professional and creative. We are so happy to have found these Garden Elves and highly recommend Larkspur!"

“I had just had a home built and was in need of landscaping. I got in touch with Seana at Larkspur Design and she came over to look at the yard and hardscaping I had in place. She took measurements and came up with a design for my space. I built in a development and wanted some plantings that offered some privacy as well as covered a retaining wall. I loved her design and hired her to do the work! She came with a team of professionals and they prepped the beds, planted, fertilized, mulched, inserted stepping stones, etc. They took care of the whole project and it looks amazing! I have received so many compliments from my neighbors on how beautiful it is. As a matter of fact, three of my neighbors have already hired her to do work and I have given out her card to two more - that speaks to the quality of their work! I have been very pleased with everything Larkspur Design has done - from the initial meeting to the design and installation. I would strongly recommend this company.”

"Thank you for another fabulous season of garden care. We appreciate it so much! We are very pleased with how our gardens are coming along and SO SO thrilled with our 8 new trees and of course, THE PATIO. We had lunch on the patio on Saturday and we are just loving it! The architect who helped design our house was here one day last week, marveling at the perfection of the steps! Many thanks to Joseph, and to the whole crew as well. Looking forward to spring with Larkspur!"

“Seana and her crew were extremely professional. Larkspur designed and installed perennials, shrubs, grasses and trees in a very large area. They exposed and cleaned up an area with a lot of ledge and we just can't be any more pleased with how everything looks. We wanted to concentrate on using native plants and good pollinators because we have bees. Her design is amazing, and full of color, contrast, and beautiful foliage. Can't wait to see it all flourish. Can't say enough good things about Larkspur.”

“We employed Larkspur to design and install gardens for our new construction home in Maine. We are committed to native plantings and sustainable landscapes. Seana obviously has the credentials and experience to provide both. She is personable, courteous, and anxious to design a landscape upon which she and her clients can collaborate and agree. Simply put, she is very easy to work with throughout both the design and installation phases. She has an artist’s eye for color and textures. She and her team have a strong work ethic. We are pleased to recommend Larkspur to create and/or improve your landscape.”

“Seana worked with us to create a comprehensive landscaping plan for our property (an old farmhouse with very little landscaping). She listened carefully to our preferences, and her final plan was outstanding, taking our suggestions into account and giving us so many wonderful ideas for companion plantings, perennial ornamentals and vegetables, and fruit and ornamental trees. We’ve been very impressed with her work, and will be continuing to work with her as we begin to implement her fantastic design.”

“The Larkspur team did a fabulous job designing and installing my new garden. At my request, they made it idiot-proof! Seana listened to what I wanted, and gave me choices that fit my needs. I would definitely recommend Larkspur.”
