VVM Designs delivers artistic landscapes that focus on the functionality and maintainability of your garden. Carol Vander Meulen APLD specializes in creating low maintenance yards that require the least amount of resources, minimizing the need for water, pesticides, waste and especially human sweat.

Carol believes the yard is an extension of the home whether it is the front yards first impression to the backyard recreation & entertainment space and especially the yard as the backdrop to/view from the inside of the home.
