Here's what some of our clients have to say:
"We are so happy we chose Gail to help us redo our back yard. She listened to all of our ideas and the final result is fabulous. Gail helped us expand our patio area to include a brick retaining wall, a fire pit which we are loving and new grass and landscaping. Gail is wonderful to work with and seriously participates in the project. I will definitely work with her again!!"
- Alan Questell, Southern Pines
"Gail did a phenomenal job on our complete backyard renovation. Our backyard was bare and very boring. It was in need of a complete transformation and that is exactly what Gail gave us. It is now a beautiful landscaped space with a gorgeous patio and fireplace that we totally are in love with our new space. She was there every step of the way monitoring every step and I loved her hands on attitude. She shared our excitement along the way as if it were her own home. We will be calling her again for other landscape improvements in the future and so should anyone who is reading this review."
- Cathey Palmer
"We have worked with Lotus Designs on several projects over the past 15 years, and would not think of calling anyone else! The results always exceed our expectations, and after coming up with stunning landscape designs, Gail makes sure the plan is executed within budget. Do not hesitate to call."

"Gail transformed a bare and visually uninteresting backyard space into a mecca of trees, shrubs and easy care perennials. Her vision included redoing poorly designed patio space incorporating it into a landscape that fosters relaxation. The work was done in a timely fashion with minimal disruption to our daily life. She takes the extra step."

"Gail designed our courtyard garden at Emmanuel Episcopal Church that is simply a stunning reclamation of an overgrown and neglected space. Her vision was perfect, the project came in on budget, and her selection of contractors was outstanding. She adds value with wonderful follow-through and expert plant selection, which allowed parishioners to participate with her supervision on-site. The Courtyard Garden Committee could not be more pleased with her work."

"Gail Scott of Lotus Designs is one of the most creative individuals with which we have had the pleasure to work. She is HONEST and fun. Gail really listened to what we wanted to accomplish with the spaces in both of our Southern Pines homes and she remained open to our ideas. She embraced most our thoughts and expounded on those ideas, as a true designer and artist, creating wonderful exterior spaces that we enjoy so much. We will always use and recommend Gail."

"Lotus Designs created just what we asked for! Gail Scott exceeded our expectations in the design for our Southern Cottage garden. She provided the details for a freestanding arbor and our brick wall. She chose plants that were adapted to the area--perfect for the feel we wanted. The perennials and shrubs continue to give us long season color even nine years later! "
