Whether you want your garden to welcome reflection or demand attention, your CreativeSpaces landscape is designed for you to love now and for years to come. We start by getting to know you and your lifestyle. This helps us create an outdoor space that reflects your values, your design aesthetic and the way you live your life. Then, our experienced installation team will bring your vision to life and leave you feeling that your garden has received white glove attention. The result is an outdoor environment as unique as you.

We design your creative space in a phased approach so that it grows with you to accommodate your budget and newfound interests. Whether you seek a quiet glade for mediation, an outdoor showplace for weekend entertaining or a space that showcases your own passion for gardening, we can help you realize your creative space.

  • Full landscape installations

In designing hardscapes, we focus on two goals: creating an aesthetic addition to your existing residence and landscape, and crafting elements that will stand the test of time. From outdoor kitchens, patios and decks to fountains, garden walls, pathways and dry creek beds, our designs will add beauty and functionality to your outdoor areas.

We work with a variety of natural materials including garden boulders, granite, cobblestones, river slicks and garden gravel, plus many more. And, we are delighted to explore new materials with you, incorporating found objects, keepsakes and art into our hardscape designs.

“When I first met with Michelle about my yard, I told her that I had many boxwoods that I planted in the back of the yard in a “holding” area and I really wanted them moved and used in other areas of the garden. The boxwoods were transported by my brother and me from Valdosta, and were dug up out of my grandparents' yard. It was important to me for these plants to be included. Most landscape designers would have told me to chunk them. She was happy to incorporate them.”

– Michele Golivesky                         .


From a single graceful urn to an arrangement of glazed pots, we can create and install stunning container designs that provide a focal point to your outdoor living spaces. Whether your containers welcome guests to your front door or serve to define outdoor “rooms,” we can update plantings to provide seasonal color and impact.


We see ourselves as caretakers of the land. We believe in using products and approaches that are effective and good for the earth and its human and animal inhabitants. Wherever we can, we reuse plants, garden material and found objects to help preserve our planet and live more lightly upon it.

But thinking “green” goes beyond the adage to reduce, reuse, and recycle. For us, green thinking reflects our commitment to design landscapes that are in balance with the lifestyle and values of the homeowners, as well as sensitive to the broader environment.


We design outdoor spaces with an eye toward minimizing the effort needed to maintain them. We are happy to teach you how to care for your new creative space, but we are equally delighted to maintain your outdoor spaces on a regular or ad hoc basis. Our experienced crew will leave your landscape looking fresh, beautiful and ready to enjoy.

Together, we can determine a schedule and list of services to perform from among our maintenance services:

  • Lawn maintenance
  • Perennial garden pruning by hand
  • Turf maintenance and fertilization
  • Leaf removal
  • Seasonal plantings
  • Proper pruning of trees and shrubs
