Hello, my name is Julie Friedman and I am a landscape designer with a passion for container garden design. I was educated at George Washington University, meshing my love of nature with formal training in plants, design principles, site engineering methods and creative use of plant materials. I am passionate about creating beautiful outdoor spaces that make nature accessible no matter the size of home or garden.
Over a decade ago, I began experimenting with seasonal container plantings, creating tiny landscapes that enhanced small spaces with diverse plant palettes that blend color, form and texture. In time, my portfolio has evolved from landscape design into a niche container garden design practice where I am able to integrate ornamental perennials, colorful annuals, edibles and evergreens, planted within beautifully designed, high quality planters.
Exteriors 'Jewel Box Collection' uses the most vibrant plant material each season to compliment clients’ homes and provide immediate results in the garden, outdoor rooms and public spaces.
I truly love fostering close relationships with clients, helping each of them individually discover and refine their personal outdoor aesthetic preferences, including guiding them through the selection of containers, furnishings and decor to enhance their spaces.
My passion for seasonal container plantings has grown as the work has broadened across all seasons of the year with residential and commercial work. The peace I feel in nature fuels the creativity in my designs. I would love to bring gorgeous container garden design to you.
