About Us

Kara Crissey is owner of Good Earth Gardeners.  She is a Certified Professional Horticulturalist who has designed gardens for ten years.  Her design aethestic is built on foundations of modern and traditional design for garden entertaining and principles of conservation landscaping.

Kara studied landscape design at the Community College of Baltimore County, Maryland and at Jardin d'Art et D'Essais in Normandy, France.  

She designed her first garden at the age of twelve with fieldstone and ferns.  As a child, instead of being sent to her room as punishment for misbehavior, Kara was required to weed the driveway. Yet, ironically, she attributes her love of gardening to her mother.
