Garden Design & Installation

For the past 22 years I have been designing and installing gardens. Coming from an art and design background led me to start a landscaping and gardening company in 1998, called Down to Earth. I comprehend nature through art and vice versa, so I view garden design projects from a macro view instead of looking at them piece-by-piece.

Whether it's annuals, perennials or shrubs, trees, patios, or fencing, I can offer my expertise in designing and installing based on the client’s needs and style.

Construction Management

After renovating three projects of my own in Manchester, Vermont, I have learned a lot about the contracting, design, and construction ecosystem in this little corner of the world. I found that I had to work hard to find reliable sub-contractors and use my experience and personality to build dependable relationships.

At times I had to work actively to make sure things were getting done correctly and on time in all of my projects. After putting in my time and building my reliable local community, I knew this process was something I could help others with.

With a focus on second-home owners, newcomers, and those who don’t have those local connections, I work to provide guidance and support to clients who need it most.

Jared - Guest - August 2019
“Tucked In is the stuff dreams are made of: cozy, plush, beautifully decorated - with beautiful landscaping and summer gardens. There’s plenty to do within walking distance, and more a short drive away. But, you may not want to leave the comfort of your home away from home!”
Laura - Guest - June 2019
“One of the best Airbnbs we've stayed at- so comfortable, clean, charming and well-located. Joan was incredibly responsive and her cottage is beautiful. Couldn't recommend it enough!”
Danielle - Guest - January 2016
“We had such a wonderful stay at Joan's cottage. The place looked exactly like the photos and was immaculate! The floors are heated - a very nice surprise. Perfect location being walking distance to town. We definitely will be back!”

“Bonnet house is the idyllic getaway in downtown Manchester! We loved being able to walk to town during the day, and cozying up to the fire in the evenings. Joan was such a gracious host - prompt in responses, great recommendations, and lovely home. We can’t wait to visit again!”

“Bonnet House is fantastic. Very convenient and walkable to restaurants and stores. The bedrooms, bathrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen are all decorated very well and very comfortable. But the den/family room became my oasis. I would highly recommend Bonnet House and we will definitely be returning.”
Karen - Guest - Fall 2020
“This is a beautiful house right in town. There are so many amenities that you almost forget you aren't staying in a hotel. The place is immaculate. Several large sitting rooms to accommodate big gatherings, a fire pit, well stocked kitchen, and games all add to a great experience.”
