Trista Shultes (who is the President of Gardens by Trista, Inc.) is passionately driven by the belief that a garden is a place where nature and art can harmonize. A well-designed garden provides peace and promotes wonder. It is a comfortable retreat in a world that is too often fractious and hectic. 

Gardens may have varied shapes, forms and functions, but our goal is always to actualize a vision that serves our clients well. And we do this by listening to you and by using our professional expertise to guide you along the path to "your" garden. We only use organic methods in our practice, and we hope to encourage this practice by the landscapes we create. Our garden design and installation services include (but are not limited to) perennial gardens, native gardens, wildflower gardens, vegetable gardens, cottage gardens, formal gardens, woodland gardens, bird and butterfly gardens, water gardens and rock gardens.
