"The design and plantings made an immediate impact to the downtown area and were well received by the citizens of Gardner.

I would highly recommend your artistically attuned and trained eye for the design of any municipal, commercial or residential property. "

Mark Hawke
Mayor, City of Gardner


"Joan's work was not only a graceful public centerpiece when new but gradually filled in and became more vibrant by the year. Her vision pulls your eye to the changing shapes and colors...it brightens our day, all day Monday through Friday!"

“It’s been pleasure to work with Joanie of Brook Bound Design, who has a great deal knowledge and familiarity in the field. The professionalism is shown in her plans and is always easy to understand. She's always available for questions or suggestions. It has been an enjoyable experience working with her over the years.”

"While I preformed the installation... I used your design and planting choices. Again all the plantings have matured and the curb appeal is astounding. It amazes me how many people have complemented the layout and choice of plantings in front of my home."

Mayor, City of Gardner


"Joan helped us take what had been an un-inspiring tri-angular rotary lining median, redesign it around a brick crosswalk and focus a garden around a subtle and classy signage area. It now draws admiring glances as drivers approach the rotary. She created an easy to maintain mix of low shrubs and grass, which are as glowing in color in the fall as they are in evolving from spring phlox to summer roses."

Scott D. Gile, CIC, VP



“I knew I wanted a colorful garden but my free time is very limited.  Joan designed a beautiful plan that provides our yard with color all season and is very low maintenance.

Joan's experience in design and vast knowledge of plants, shrubs and trees made her our choice for landscape designer.  We are currently using her services to design our backyard patio and pool area. We are confident it will be as impressive as our previous design.  “
