“That Mt. Cuba Center is a world-class resource was demonstrated for us, once again. The time spent with Karen was valuable, informed and very timely. You bring an enormous wealth of experience, knowledge and practical wisdom to the table. After speaking with an array of landscapers and arborists, it was refreshing to have a conversation with someone who knows the field and is not selling anything. Your focus on what options may be best in our space helped me greatly in my quest to put “the right plant in the right place.” Mt. Cuba plant finder is a treasure trove of user-friendly information.” – Lou Ann M.
