“Diana designed and contracted a remedy to a drainage problem in our yard that had carried off grass, plants and soil for many years. She was a solid professional from the proposal/bid stage to the final walk-through. She was responsive, thorough and pleasant to work with. Her hard-working crew was precise and very respectful of our property. The new dry creek bed and underground drains are working great, and the new grass and plants are happy, too. [We] can recommend her without hesitation.”

“I worked with Diana approximately six years ago, when we built our home in southwest Austin. She was a pleasure to work with, and I felt she asked the right questions and listened to my wishes. I must say, the outcome exceeded my expectations. We stayed within budget and have been happy with the design, even after things have matured.”
“Diana put my desires first when she coached me last fall. I needed to comply with the City of Austin’s Water Wise guidelines, but I also wanted my xeriscape to look a certain way. Before she coached me, I had drawn up several ‘plans’ of my own. After she coached me, I was left with an amazing professional sketch, and it was the best thing that has happened to my yard. I cannot imagine embarking on a lawn renovation project without a professional coach. I would have made serious and very costly mistakes. I highly recommend Diana Kirby.”
plant“I just wanted to tell you that one of the highlights of last year was my landscape project… spending time in my back yard brings me constant pleasure; there is not a day I go back there where I don’t absolutely love what I see.”
landscaping“My coaching hour was the most worthwhile hour I’ve spent in a long, long time. Your deep knowledge of plants, along with your instinctive design visions, have made my project seem possible and real.”
“We’ve worked with Diana on projects at two different homes. Her design sense is uncanny – she sees possibilities in a landscape that we couldn’t imagine. Diana is very detailed oriented and considers the important things like your style; how much sun or shade an area gets, watering, as well as how much effort you want to put into maintaining your garden. Beyond design, her team’s quality of work and professionalism are excellent. They are thorough, timely and respectful of your property. The end result is a landscape that we love each and every day!”
“Our budget was tight, but Diana made it all happen! We put the structure (many retaining walls and drainage solutions) in place and Diana produced a planting plan based on the plants we like and what will grow in this tough environment that may be implemented along the way. Her crew was professional and really knew what they were doing. We are very satisfied with our working relationship and the results!”

“Diana transformed our small backyard garden from an eye sore to a space that is an extension of our home. Diana worked with us to use only native plants and to solve our drainage issues. The crew was friendly, efficient and left the work area spotless each day. We love spending time on our porch looking out at the beautiful greenery where there is always something in bloom. It delights us daily.”

“It was such a pleasure working with Diana on our landscape improvements last fall.  She spent a great deal of time with us to understand what we hoped to accomplish and came up with a beautiful design that really shows off the front of our home.  She was more than happy to make tweaks to stay within our budget.  We love the colors and shapes of the plants she installed and that they are all drought tolerant. Her ongoing advice when a plant starts to “look funny” and her tips on pruning and maintenance are a real plus.  I highly recommend Diana and her crew for any landscape project.”
