A Colorado native, Holly Brooks' love for the outdoors and living a healthy lifestyle led her to Colorado State University, where she earned a degree in environmental horticulture, with a concentration in landscape design and construction.
Now, with over 20 years experience designing and building award-winning landscapes, Holly starts each project with the conviction that a landscape can and should be more than just pretty…can and should be more than just functional. Her designs incorporate the best that nature has to offer – edible and medicinal plants, native and sustainable alternatives, and a careful eye that guards against high maintenance choices that are commonly found in less experienced designs.
Holly believes that everyone should feel compelled to spend time outside each day. Not laboring over their landscape, but enjoying and resting in it. And with the right design, all of that is possible. This is why Holly says, a well-designed outdoor space will give back to its caretaker – health, healing, nurturing, and nutrition.
So it’s no surprise that Holly’s projects have been featured on HGTV’s Ground Breakers, as well as on home shows and garden tours throughout Atlanta.
And Holly doesn’t just talk the talk – she walks the walk. She and her husband, Stephen, live outside Atlanta with their two daughters, cats, and chickens – where they enjoy their family vegetable garden and naturalized play spaces.
