Carrie Preston by jolanthe lalkens

Carrie Preston has been designing gardens for 25 years. At just 14 years old she started working at a perennial nursery in NJ and became quickly obsessed with plants. After completing a degree in horticulture and sustainable agriculture she went to the Netherlands for an internship and never left. In 2005 she started her own design firm, Studio TOOP.

In the past 10 years she has built a solid reputation and her projects are regularly shown in magazines and blogs in both the Netherlands and abroad. For Chelsea 2015 she helped build the Dutch Chocolate Garden designed by Carien van Boxtel for Schellevis, a Dutch cement and paving company.

About Rochelle Greayer

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
