Our Story

We are committed to providing our customers the guidance and resources needed to create stylish and sustainable outdoor living environments.

Kecia Carlson founded the company in 2002 after recognizing that many people enjoy gardening and the process of creating a garden or outdoor space, but that each person has different levels of interest, knowledge and ability when it comes to design, horticulture and landscaping. That, coupled with the environmental conditions of gardening in the Treasure Valley, only enhances the challenge of creating a great space. She launched Madeline George Landscape & Garden Design to help people create their outdoor living spaces - spaces that are meaningful, stylish and sustainable.

The company began as a small garden design firm. However, since 2002, the company has developed as an award-winning landscape and garden design firm and continues with its design work today. While a majority of the work is residential, the company has designed a number of public and commercial spaces and is currently involved in the design of JUMP in downtown Boise.

Together with partner company, Think Green Inc., Madeline George offers design and build services such as consultations, design, estimates, material selection, installation and construction. The company offers its services in an "a la carte" fashion to facilitate individual needs and interests. See the "Services" tab for more information about our services and fees.

In April 2012, the company furthered its mission with the opening of a design-driven retail nursery, Madeline George Garden Design & Nursery. The nursery is innovative in its retail design and ability to showcase the variety of garden styles from which customers can draw inspiration for creating their own unique space, as well as education about gardening in the Treasure Valley. The nursery offers a wonderful collection of plants that thrive in the Treasure Valley climate and unique outdoor garden furnishings, including the classic, authentic French bistro line - FERMOB. The nursery also offers a selection of gardening accessories and supplies.

Visit us and let us help you create wonderful outdoor and garden spaces.

Style. Sustainability. Madeline George.
