Landscape Design
Landscapes are the welcome mat and the first impression of your home. They make guests at ease and invoke a setting of serenity and calm. Darbyshire Designs has been designing landscapes for 25 years and has experience with various plant life from Texas to the east coast, the west coast, and the Caribbean. We use landscape to create outdoor spaces similar to your home that allow the natural beauty and joy of your landscaping to be an extension of the function and comfort of your home.


Client quotes

“I had the pleasure of working with Marion and I couldn't be happier with the results. From our very first conversation, she took the time to listen to my ideas and understand my unique style. Her ability to translate those ideas into a beautifully designed space exceeded my expectations. It’s rare to find someone who not only has a great sense of design, but also genuinely cares about their client’s vision. Marion is that rare gem. Her attention to detail, creativity and dedication to finding the perfect fit for me made the entire process enjoyable and stress-free. I now have a space that feels like a true reflection of my personality and lifestyle. I’ve received countless compliments from friends and family who rave about the transformation. I can’t recommend Marion at Darbyshire Designs enough - she’s truly excellent at what she does!”
~ Kristin & Philip Thompson

“Marion completely changed our view of what an interior designer could be. We had experience with designers in the past who seemed to pick out items for us based only on what they think ‘looked good’. Marion was different. The first thing she did when she came to our house was not to suggest some pillows and ornaments. Instead, she measured the room down to the quarter inch. This was impressive and showed that she had real training and a plan.

I said we wanted color. But she kept bringing elements without color. I thought she wasn’t listening. She kept explaining that bright colors need a neutral background. The final result was beautiful. With the neutral background, the colors popped. Rather than a room full of colors all mixed together, the room focused attention on the colors we loved. She knew what we wanted long before we did.

And no less important than her technical skills is the fact that Marion is just plain fun to work with. We couldn’t recommend her more highly."
~ Jim and Marlana Nohrden

"We presented Marion with a vision for landscaping a urban-sized yard. We needed an oasis as I was receiving cancer treatments and a place to receive and entertain guests. Our request was long and included a fire pit, area for lawn games, outdoor kitchen with TV and sitting area, dining space, therapeutic hot tub, and rose garden with fountain. She delivered a well-thought-out plan that provided the exact design we needed in form and function. It is a beautiful and relaxing extension of our home and a vital part of my healing process."
~ Susan Nichols

"Marion’s amazing style and approach to decorating our house made it all very seamless and manageable while handling an infant and a toddler. I could not have done it without her. In addition, her impeccable taste, sense of style, and economical approach to the whole endeavor have made the look and feel of our house very unique and timeless all at the same time.  We are grateful to have had her guidance and design expertise."
~ Carrye Glazer

“My husband and I are so pleased with the kitchen Marion designed for us. Marion is a very intuitive designer. She quickly understood the look we were hoping to achieve and brought ideas to the table that we would have never thought of, but were exactly what we wanted. We adore our kitchen and are so thankful for the beautiful space she created”
~ Amy Jo Dunsmore

"Marion Darbyshire was engaged to renovate an 8,000 square foot home (four bedrooms, five bathrooms) in the upscale neighborhood of “Jacks Hill”, Saint Andrew, Jamaica. It turned out very well and has received rave reviews. Marion was easy to work with and very professional."
~ Malcom McDonald

"Marion came into my home, and, using everything I already had, created three beautiful, functional spaces. Nothing was purchased, no new pieces introduced. I have never changed it."
~ Diana Thorburn-Chen
