Garden Design, Consulting, Writing & Speaking

A longtime Northwest horticultural treasure, Lucy Hardiman is a nationally recognized garden designer, writer, teacher and speaker as well as the owner and principal of the award-winning Perennial Partners, a collaborative garden design group in Portland, Oregon.

Perennial Partners is a dynamic garden design collaborative rooted in an obsession with gardens, a passion for plants, people, and innovative hardscape design, founded by Lucy. What began as a partnership of two has morphed over time into an award-winning practice of five eclectic, talented, innovative, funny, energetic garden design professionals. Our work model stems from Lucy’s belief that the creative process is enhanced when there is a pool of ideas and skill sets from which to draw. Perennial Partners offers a diverse range of services from consultations to master plans, and we create gardens where aesthetics meld with function, comfort, aesthetics and sustainability.
