“When we decided to put our townhouse up for sale, Angie created the most beautiful arrangements for our flower boxes and porch planters to showcase our outdoor spaces. And when we decided to stay, she guided us through the process of having custom privacy planters built and tall grasses planted for two of our decks. The result: two beautiful secret gardens in the middle of the city. Angie’s eye for color, knowledge of plants and flowers, professionalism, and responsiveness make her a dream to work with. We’re grateful to have found her.”

“I own a bar in Chicago called Central Park bar. We’ve used Angie and Hemlock Garden and Floral for 2 seasons now. Angie is great! Prompt, professional and truly cares about her work. She still does an occasional drive by to check on the ferns.”

- Scott Spidale

“I would like to express my immense gratitude to Angie and her dear friend Ellen for their selfless assistance in tidying up my unkempt garden and tending to my landscape. Their kind help came at a time when I was incapacitated due to an injury, and the outcome of their efforts is nothing short of spectacular. I cannot thank them enough for rescuing both me and my garden!”

- Ceci Rodgers

“We used Angie for our roof deck and porch and the results turned out amazing!! She was so detailed in her selection of the plants, in the planning of the project, and in the selection of new planters (she worked overtime with the company to get the planters just right). Everything grew out wonderfully and we have some beautiful new additions to our home. We will definitely be using her again.”

- Timothy Janetos

“Working with Angie was a delight! She was incredibly responsive and worked with us on our budget to get the most bang for our buck. Our beautiful restaurant planters lasted all season with minimal upkeep, and she checked in frequently after installation. Highly recommended!” 

- Michelle Szot

“I have worked with Angie and Hemlock for over 2 years now and I find her service to be exemplary. She replaces our planters on a seasonal basis and leaves them looking beautiful. She has also done other planters through our facility that look equally as good. On top of that the service is great and she’s prompt with her appointments. I am very happy with the service she provides us.”

“I've worked with Angie and her team at Hemlock for the past two years, and plan to do so again this Spring. She has a terrific eye for pulling together plantings of complementary colors, heights, textures, etc. She's great at working within whatever budget you give her. And, I should add, she's never once complained or charged me extra because my terrace is five flights of stairs up from the street in a building without an elevator! But the best part about working with Angie, as someone who spends a lot of time away from home traveling for business, is that she is able to take "a brief" and independently run with it, keeping you in the loop as much (or as little) as you want. She's honest, thorough and conscientious. All I need to do is arrange to let her into and out of the building, and she does the rest.”

“Angie designed and planted my large balcony and her work was great. She prepared all pots and planters, designed the colors and plants I liked, from popular plants to unusually large and unique plantings. She left the balcony immaculate and the end result was strikingly beautiful. The only thing left for me to do was water. After the season, she came back and removed old plantings and again left the balcony immaculate. I highly recommend Angie for her knowledge, expertise, hard work and great design sense.”

“Angie gave a beautiful urban garden presentation for one of my ‘client appreciation’ events on the Guaranteed Rate Rooftop. Her container gardening tips were so helpful and the pots she showed us how to make were stunning! Her work speaks for itself, but I also appreciated her responsive communication and professionalism that helped make our event a success.”

- Michelle Bobart

“When I met Angie, I knew I met a friend for life. It was our first Spring/Summer in our new home in Lincoln Park and it needed some TLC, beautification, and general clean-up. Angie's vision was incredible and well within our budget. We now have the most beautiful pots in our front yard and two back decks. It’s a true urban oasis thanks to Angie and her team. I would highly recommend her as she is a consummate professional and just delightful to work with.”

- Karen Scalise

“Angie completed our terrace rooftop container garden and created a beautiful setting for our urban garden. She was extremely easy to work with and listened to what we envisioned. She completed the work on our short timeline during an unusually cold and rainy period. We highly recommend Angie.”

- Susanne Shultz

“My yard has never looked better thanks to the help Angie has provided over the past 2 years. She put in lots of plants that I wasn't up for doing, created lovely container plantings and did general cleanup in some overgrown beds. I'm so glad I found her through Gethsemane Gardens list of recommended landscapers.”
