Flo's Gardens

Gardening

Flos'Gardens was founded in 2004 by two friends who share a love for gardening: Florence Sheers and Cecilia Kuhn. Florence grew up among the roses of her father's nursery and afterwards trained as a florist. Cecilia studied architecture and transfered her love for design to gardens. Both were born in France but draw inspiration from many sources, especially English gardens, in developing customized design solutions for each of their clients.They are united by their passion for creating natural, renewable and beautiful green spaces in an urban environment and have worked their magic on gardens and decks for clients from Park Slope to Brooklyn Heights and Manhattan.

    We have known Florence and Cecelia for years and now use their exceptional skills to tend the garden in our back yard, which is to say that several times a year, at key times, they and their cadre of assistants clean, clear, revitalize, trim, etc. our garden. They are super quick, very efficient and take care of all sorts off things we would not ourselves know how to do. They are extremely nice, helpful in every way and skilled at doing exactly what needs to be done. Thank heavens for Flo's Gardens. Their work is uplifting and renews our spirits as well as our plants and trees! Thank you!

    Florence and Cecilia have been to my Cobble Hill garden twice now to provide me with advice on what to plant in my shade garden. They clearly know what they are talking about. Very thoughtful, practical and careful. Would highly recommend!

    Thanks to these ladies, our back yard is a mini-paradise in the midst of Brooklyn. They helped us create a concept working with what was there, got the soil in top form, and chose only the most tasteful and beautiful plantings. Now in its second season, our garden is magnificent. They also do the best seasonal window boxes, and can connect clients with a stone mason, irrigation company, and arborist. They are always professional and pleasant to work with. We highly recommend them!

    We have been using Florence and Cecelia for two years now, and are thrilled with the work they have done for us. From window boxes to a total redesign and development of our backyard from scratch, the quality of their work and product is exceptional. We consistently have people stopping in front of our home to take pictures as their seasonal arrangements are planted. Even harder to find in our neighborhood is a service provider that communicates well and is responsive to our outreach. We highly recommend their work!

    Upon first meeting Florence and Cecilia my wife and I were swept away. I think initially it had to do with the fact that simply hearing them speak transported us to the south of France, a place where everything looks and smells wonderful. As we began to work together, we were subsequently sold on their professionalism - it's so refreshing to meet with service providers that are punctual, thoughtful and do exactly what they say they will when they say they will. We have completed one project with them so far, and have another one planned. Thank you both so much for your efforts in our garden, and we look forward to many years of collaboration!

    The Best of the best!
    Florence and Cecilia have re-designed our garden and transformed it into a peaceful heaven. They are thoughtful, caring, creative, responsive, get their hands dirty and are just an absolute delight to work with. They have been caring for the garden since its inception and very knowledgeable about city gardening. As an added bonus, they are completely reliable and professional.
    Gregory.
