what clients are saying

Courtney, owner of Olander Garden Design was one of our best decisions regarding design and helping with the execution of our landscape project…When she first meets you, she has you do a short survey of your likes and dislikes of plants and flowers ,and then comes up with a landscape palette for you…she respects your budget and needs, and gives you several options…Courtney worked so well with the landscaping company that we hired to do the physical execution. She is so thorough, that she caught construction mistakes before they came to fruition. Her choice of tree and plants was phenomenal… she would go to several nurseries to find the perfect specimens. I feel that Courtney can do any landscape design, whether it is a small garden or a complete remodel of property as we did.

I would give the highest recommendation for Courtney – she is the visionary for our front and back yard transformation. Working within the constraints of our space and accounting for how we planned to use our yard, she created a design that maximized our limited budget. She is also very knowledgeable about plants native to the NW and a year later our new space is thriving!


I was overwhelmed this afternoon when I walked into the backyard. It is like having our own little sanctuary spot.  We appreciate the great service that you provided to us and just absolutely love our garden!

J. Grasseschi, Loyal Heights

We are very pleased, Courtney.  We were expecting the transformation to be dramatic, of course, but even with that expectation in mind, we were frankly stunned yesterday after everyone left and we had time to take it all in.  Thank you very much from both of us.

Everything looks great and am so excited to see it all in bloom next spring and summer.  It was great working with you and would certainly be a referral for you if you should ever need one.

Thank you so much for all your creative work on our project.  We are thrilled!

S. Hurt, Innis Arden

So thrilled! What fun to come home to the beautifully done pots!  They’re gorgeous and it’ll be fun to see what does well.  I love the colors you chose, rich red is my favorite color and it looks great as an accent.  Beautiful work, thank you! 

L. Friedman, Mercer Island

Just a quick note to say that the backyard is coming wonderfully to life and we are enjoying it very much.  Thank you again.
