About Kathryn

Kathryn Hackett’s gardening “roots” go back three generations. Her grandfather spent his early life maintaining country gardens in Seven Oaks, England, and Kathryn apprenticed with him for most of her teenage years as he continued his trade in the United States after World War 2. Her father became a tree surgeon and large scale landscape designer and Kathryn spent a great deal of time on those job sites as well learning about site work and using large scale thinking to dramatically change landscapes.

For Kathryn herself, gardening in general – and English country traditions in particular – have been a lifelong interest. She combined her passion with degrees in business management and psychology, and founded Kathryn’s Gardens in 1987. Her gardening work has taken her from Burlington, Vermont, to Denver, Colorado. Today, she works with clients in northern and central Vermont.
Over the past 20-plus years, Kathryn’s study of Feng Shui (the chinese art of placement), her hands-on experience, and her strong connection to the energy of the natural world has made her highly successful in nurturing and restoring gardens and landscapes, as well as the people who live in them. Kathryn is an expert at planning gardens that are highly in tune with their environment and with the lifestyles and expectations of their owners. Her success can be measured both in client satisfaction and in the extremely high plant survival rate in her installations.
