Natural Gardening | Boone, NC
Caring for the Earth, People & Communities
In August 2014 we purchased a property in the Sugar Grove, NC area. The previous owners were kind enough to provide us a list of contractors they used and Jasmine's Gardens was on that list so we contacted Jasmine Shoshanna about some landscaping & hardscaping changes we wanted to make. At our first meeting, we walked around the property and talked about our ideas while she took notes and made suggestions. She talked about blending any changes with the existing lush landscape and maintaining the natural flow of the land. After that meeting, we felt confident Jasmine understood what we were hoping to achieve. A few weeks later we had a follow-up meeting and she presented us with drawings. We were amazed to see how she had captured our vision on paper. It was at that time we became a team.
Since we were also doing inside renovations the outside was scheduled for Spring, 2015. This gave us the winter months to decide on materials like stone, lighting, and plants. The project started right on target and remained that way through completion. One of the great things about Jasmine is the way she keeps you informed. Our primary residence is three hours away and it was so refreshing to be working with a contractor that understood how important communication is. We received constant updates via email, often accompanied by progress pictures. She also kept us on track with the budget and informed us when changes would affect the bottom line. The end result was no less than amazing. Jasmine and her team transformed our property into a mountain oasis.
We feel very fortunate to have had such a talented and caring company do this beautiful work for us. Everyone we met from Jasmine's team was friendly and professional. Jasmine Shoshanna is truly committed to quality results and excellent customer service and we highly recommend Jasmine's Gardens for all your outdoor needs.

I have been a client of Jasmine's Gardens for four years. She is dependable, conscientious, and hardworking. Her crew is well trained and they do quality work. I have used her crew for carpentry work on landscape steps and repair work outside my house. The work has been excellent and reasonably priced.
I value her opinions on my property. Most of all over the years, I have appreciated how she communicates possible maintenance or upgrades items with the property. She sends "garden email notes" after visits and as an owner who is not at our home year round, these observations and updates are extremely important to me. I trust her judgments and her ethics.
I would highly recommend utilizing Jasmine's Gardens.
Jasmine and her crew transformed my yard! They built a gorgeous stone walkway, solved a big drainage problem, designed and constructed two handsome gates, tamed my aggressively out-of-control sneezeweed/briar/multiflora rose invasion, re-shaped flower beds, transplanted bushes, covered a large area of lawn with attractive woodchips, and built a lovely grapevine arbor of their own design.
They tackled each job with creativity, enthusiasm, and lots of hard manual labor. Each project was a carefully thought-out piece of Jasmine’s vision to bring a sense of unity to my yard, to give it an aesthetic that reflects my personality, and to make its upkeep as easy as possible. I am so pleased with the results! I can’t imagine a better—or more fun—landscaping experience.

Jasmine is the consummate interpreter of the environment and artful facilitator of client wants and earth's treasures. Her respect for these elements is expressed in all that she delivers. She has exceeded my expectations with her creative landscape, hardscape, compost installations and maintenance.

A HUGE thanks to you! You really knocked my socks off last night! Your presentation was fantastic and inspiring. I loved the having your clients there to speak -- [What] a great touch. It was so cool how they happened to spread out around the room too. I told my mom it was like we were all surrounded by Jasmine inspiration!
