Christie's home and front garden

See Boston Gardens On June 11th

Every year since 1995, hundreds of exceptional private gardens nationwide are selected to participate in The Garden Conservancy’s ‘Open Days’. On Sunday, June 11th from 10am-4pm the Greater Boston Area Open Days will feature outstanding gardens, some with historical pedigrees and others representing remarkable accomplishments of local gardeners and landscape designers. One such designer whose garden will be featured is our partner, Christie Dustman.

More on Christie: Christie Dustman is one of a select number of designers for whom we provide hardscape installations. We’ve worked with Christie for many years and are glad to be able to refer her to our clients in the Brookline, Roslindale and West Roxbury areas for landscape design, as well as fine gardening, drip irrigation, and container design.

Christie’s personal home garden was also recently featured in a March issue of The Boston Globe Magazine.
