About the Designer
Dana Cleaveley is a certified Landscape Designer who creates designs for both residential and commercial sites. She believes that designing a garden is truly a partnership between herself, the client, and the surrounding environment. Her goal is to transform spaces into functional yet stunning landscapes, and ultimately to create a little breathing room for her clients.
Dana continues to upgrade and test her skills through courses, seminars, trade shows, and industry events/affiliations. She draws inspiration from both international and local gardens that she has visited; in 2012 she toured famous gardens of England, and in 2013 she toured those of Italy.
