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.
