“I would love for you to contact me about your garden needs. You will receive personal attention while your preferences and budget will be a top priority in the design process”- Hilary Ross
In the South, we have a deep appreciation and respect for the beauty of nature, and our love for beautiful landscapes stems from that thought. Nothing is more important to a garden than good design, which enables the landscape to meet your needs. Your outdoor haven should be a reflection of your personality and taste, so let us bring that vision to reality!
Our primary objective is to assist clients with garden design and be a constant for them during the transition period of installation, where multiple questions and details may arise. Another purpose is to guide the design process and assist in the selection and placement of trees, shrubs, flowers and hardscapes to allow the homeowner maximum enjoyment of their property.
Good design can unify a garden and give it balance. Such spaces provide year-round beauty, blend with their surroundings, and make life more enjoyable and rewarding. It could be as simple as a small project, such as a courtyard design, to a large project, such as designing an entire estate plan.
With a degree from the University of Alabama, Hilary Ross devoted some of her free time as a docent at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Spending hours in the gardens piqued her interest in nature. After returning to school to take landscape design classes, what began as a hobby in her free time, evolved into a new business for Hilary. In choosing a name for her business, Hilary considered the two most important facets of her life – being a mother to her three children and her love and appreciation for nature. What better words to represent those thoughts than “Mother Nature”? As a clever twist to the business name, Hilary decided to use the Latin words for Mother Nature – Mater Natura – as homage to the botanical names, which all use the Latin language.
She is available for design, including detailed plans and plant lists, to consultation on a project. Her involvement can be tailored to meet your needs and budget.
