Louis Raymond, Landscape Designer
Client Feedback

Raves about Louis’ Gardens:

Let me take this opportunity to congratulate you on your work in The Gardens. After a two-year absence I returned to them with astonishment. They look wonderful.
Stephen Sondheim, New York, NY

Bravo! Bravo! A zillion thanks for my Garden of Eden.
Alice Boss-Altman, Providence, RI

When we engaged Louis to landscape our Edwardian home, we asked him to create a sanctuary to refresh our eyes and spirit at the end of our busy day. This is what we got: a curving, box-lined path to a small Grecian temple set amid deep beds filled with spectacular greenery and a steady progression of flowers both delicate and daring. The garden is a source of endless delight!
Dr. Carolyn Newberger, Brookline, MA

Louis has made my shady Manhattan garden a lush outdoor room that I savor year-round. I had no idea the range of rare and attractive species that would thrive here in the city.
Robin Sedgwick, New York, NY

Louis Raymond adds the "wham" to our New England Spring Flower Show. He inspires our exhibitors to design and create displays that are exciting, inspirational, and distinctively horticultural in character.
Dr. John C. Peterson, President Emeritus,
Massachusetts Horticultural Society

Our garden is a glory. We could never have imagined it on our own. Louis supplied not only the vision, but also the ineffable defining spirit it has attained—harmony and wit.
Liza Collins and John Cady, Matunuck Hills, RI

Louis has a great understanding of the symbiotic relationship between landscapes and architecture. He inspires our clients and us.
Michele S. Foster, Foster Associates, Portsmouth, RI

As true beginners with very little knowledge, we have been guided, taught, encouraged, and beguiled by the balance and beauty of our grounds and gardens. Thank you, Louis, for the joy.
Bob and Linda Fischer, Providence, RI

The key to my business is repeat customers, and Louis’ immense perennial borders, and his popular garden tours, are an essential part of our successful marketing. Our theatre and restaurant patrons can’t wait to come back to see the next show—both onstage and in the garden.
Richard Ericson
Artistic Producer, Theatre-By-The-Sea, Wakefield, RI


Ovations for Louis’ Lectures:

The David Sedaris of gardening!
Charlotte Peabody, Barrington Garden Club

Louis’ lecture was mesmerizing. As funny as he is brilliant, he enabled our membership to appreciate for the first time the marvelous interplay of history and society in their own home landscapes.
Dr. Eli Newberger, The Tavern Club, Boston, MA

Your talk was as humorous as your gardens are thrilling. Thanks for entertaining the Association so memorably.
Clara Hieronymous,
American Theatre Critics Association

If you ever retire from garden design, you’d be terrific doing stand-up.
Roberta Mohagen
Program Chair, Town Hall Lecture Series, Fargo, ND

The only reason I’d miss one of your lectures would be premature, unplanned death.
Clare Gregorian
wife of Vartan Gregorian, President, Carnegie Endowment

Your garden will reveal yourself.—Henry Mitchell
