"Gardens by Design of Connecticut, LLC delivered exactly what I hired the company to do: transform my small, suburban backyard into a pollinator and plant paradise. My backyard started as drab and Bebe, Vic, and their crew made it fab. I asked them to take out all of the grass and install a stone path and patio, as well as stepping stone paths. Bebe suggested that we move the patio away from its original location near the garage to give the it airflow and make it cooler. It was a great suggestion. I wanted a color-filled space that would attract pollinators. I asked for drought resistant flowering perennials, shrubs, and grasses and Gardens by Design delivered. It is now the third summer with this yard (the work was completed in September 2019) and the space looks wonderful. Everything is flourishing. Bebe knows plants, that's for sure. She has an eye for plant design and knows how to mix textures, shapes, colors, and heights. Vic knows stone work and excelled in that aspect of the job. I couldn't be happier with the space and would happily hire the company again."

"We hired Gardens by Design to landscape our front yard. We loved it so much we had them back for the backyard. Bebe & Vic were a pleasure to work with. They were very professional &thorough. When one of the tress died after a year, they were back to replace it quickly & without any hassle. We just sold our house &know the beautiful landscaping helped immensely. We had so many comments about the beautiful curb appeal. We have loved our gardens for several years & know the new owners will also. Many thanks to Bebe & Vic. We highly recommend them."
"We hired Gardens by Design last spring and the completed project transformed our yard! We live on a hill and had no level area in our large backyard--as well as a problem with standing water periodically after heavy rains. The creative result exceeded our expectations and resulted in an entirely new "outdoor room" for family enjoyment and entertaining. They installed a dry creek bed to address the water issue and also to make the area very visually attractive. We also had a firepit and patio installed and were very impressed at the workmanship of the crew and the attention to detail. When a water control issue emerged during the project--they addressed and corrected it. Bebe and Vic were wonderful to work with from start to finish."

"If you have never experienced the joy of a professional well designed garden you are missing out on one of life’s great joys! I have had the privilege and pleasure of enjoying the work of Gardens by Design for over 2 decades! Bebe Gallo is natures artist. Her attention to detail, knowledge of plants and aesthetic sensibility is such a gift. As the seasons of a garden designed by Bebe enfold, you come to understand the wisdom and years of experience that she pours into each design. She meticulously hand selects each plant with knowledge of its size, variety and sustainability. I have trusted Gardens by Design with several of my properties and they have never failed to deliver stunning work. If you are looking for a garden/ foundation planting design and installation that you can enjoy for years, then I couldn’t recommend MORE the experience of working with these passionate professionals. All landscape companies are not the same! This company understands design and truly loves what they do and it shows! Do yourself a favor and experience the difference!"
"Gardens by Design of Connecticut is one of those special types of professionals who don't need to advertise their artistic talents and beautiful work; the proof of their skill resonates in the job that is done that is admired by everyone who visits my home and has withstood the test of time. Bebe and Vic have created a piece of heaven for me from the start, and continue to add to it with every project that gets completed over the years. They worked with me personally, discussed things fully, created a plan, and have accommodated my crazy work and home life. They know their stuff and don't cut corners. I know I will be working with them for years to come."

"For years Bebe has transformed yards in my neighborhood. Even though my landscape projects have not been on the same scale, I have received the careful planning, great service and attention to detail for which Gardens by Design is known. It has been a pleasure working with Bebe and I highly recommend Gardens by Design of Connecticut."

I have had the pleasure to know Bebe (Gardens by Design) for over 20 years. She has transformed my gardens into displays of artwork. She tirelessly designs, picks out planting’s and many other details which are too numerous to mention. She does it all. Her staff also maintain my gardens better than I can. What sets her apart from anyone else is she is always thinking of how the design will affect or compliment the environment. She uses all organic organisms to solve any pest issues that may arise. I would highly recommend Gardens by Design."
