ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Hello. I am Edith Katz, a Landscape Architect and professional garden designer with award winnning national and international landscapes all over the world and published gardens in the USA.
I recently returned from having lived and worked in London, England for over six years. With many beautiful gardens on my mind, I became challenged to find a way for ex-urban and rural gardeners in deer country to acquire sophisticated and distinctive designs that would allow them to enjoy beauty in their outdoor surroundings without sacrificing to the 'the beasts'. That is when I created Beauty Despite the Beast.
I offer my expertise and what is normally only available from expensive design studios at very low cost by creating a portfolio of ' off the shelf' pre-planned garden designs that can be adapted to a wide range of site locations. I also offer custom residential design services for deer resistant gardens that address an entire site.
I hope you enjoy Beauty Despite the Beast!
