Attention to Detail

I start every project by providing a thorough consultation to understand your goals and the needs of the project, and to ensure that the garden is completed according to your preferences. 

Spring and Fall are the busiest seasons of the year, so contacting me as early as possible once you consider it is a good idea. Thank you for looking at my projects, Christine Staehelin.

Client Reviews

I had the pleasure of working with Christine on a front yard project in the city and a sizable, intricate garden project in the country. Christine approached every aspect of landscaping, from design to installation, with diligence, passion and an artist’s sensibility. Her unique skills and talents and her solid knowledge of plant life, including varieties, their specific characteristics and needs, allowed her to create gardens that are exceptionally beautiful, healthy and sustainable. I can wholeheartedly recommend Christine’s landscaping services.

We love Christine and her team! We have worked with them on seasonal changes and maintenance on our storefront planters. We are always delighted when they come, and so are our neighbors. They always stop by to tell us how much they love our planters. We are thrilled to have found them, and consider them a valuable resource.

Christine's knowledge and creativity helped change my deck garden from dull to flourishing. She had to work with plants that do well in shade since I don't get much sun. In 2016 she sketched a plan and selected plants that would thrive in that environment, she picked an interesting variety, some for color, or for texture, or shape, and for the first time, I even had some flowers blooming there. In 2017, Christine installed an irrigation system, which kept the plants thriving even when I was away, as I often am in the summer. Christine is still keeping an eye on her work and she is always helpful and available for my garden concerns and questions.

3 Pines Garden Design did a fantastic job with our backyard garden. Christine provided a number of different, creative options from which to choose that were an excellent fit. She worked very hard and efficiently to complete the job quickly and at a very affordable rate. We use our garden all of the time and love the results.

We have a small front perennial garden in Brooklyn that Christine has been taking care of for a little over a year.  It has never looked so good. She has helped us choose new plants that keep the garden blooming and lush from early spring to the fall and takes care of the irrigation, clean up, pruning, buying the plants and designing and planting for the garden so it always looks its best. She is really communicative and always lets me know when she is coming to work in the garden and what she did while she was there. I enjoy working with Christine and highly recommend her. She has really nice ideas, she is creative, knows her plants, and easily picks up on how I want the garden to look and works with me to achieve it.  She is dedicated, honest, helpful, and responsive.

Working with Christine was such a pleasure. She understood our vision and worked closely with us to better understand what made the most sense in our environment and how to best sustain our garden over the years. Her attention to detail and obvious care and love for what she does was very evident, it let us know we were in very good hands. We always dreamed of having a garden oasis in our little Brooklyn patio and Christine made it better than we could have imagined.
