The Garden Nanny, LLC





Hello I'm Leslie, The Garden Nanny

As The Garden Nanny, I take a personal interest in the property of each of my clients, and I bring a woman’s touch to all of my landscape installation and maintenance activities. My experienced team and I take pride in our work, ensuring every job is performed with an attention to detail that our clients truly appreciate. I develop a close relationship with my clients and make sure that our finished work always meets or exceeds their expectations.


With my experienced crew, I have completed both full yard installations and installations in small areas of yards that needed to be updated or redesigned. In addition to our installations, we have had the pleasure of doing seasonal cleanups for many clients in the Albuquerque area, building a loyal following of clients who have appreciated our attention to detail and that we require no long term  contracts.


As an avid outdoors woman (hiking, camping, fly fishing and mineral collecting), my designs are greatly influenced by the textures, plant arrangement, and colors from nature. These influences help me develop a more natural look for the landscapes that I design and install. The link on my site labeled Pick Your Plants provides photos and information on many plants that are suitable for our environment. This page allows current and future clients to participate in plant selection or just see which plants are often used in our landscape designs.


I work closely with my experienced crew to bring quality work to fully meet my client’s expectation for landscape installations and maintenance. Prior to our arrival at a property, I stay in touch with our clients, advising them of scheduling dates and what they can expect with each visit. I offer a plant warranty for installations and make sure our clients are well advised on how to maintain their beautiful landscapes, including providing watering schedules to ensure success. We stand behind the work we do and fulfill any follow-up work that may be required in a timely manner.

Listed below are some awesome testimonials from out clients! See more on our REVIEWS page.

They worked closely with me to plan types of plants and placement in the garden beds. They submitted a design sketch which I approved, and delivered exactly what they promised.

Leslie and her crew were excellent! Her crew even went a little beyond what I had requested and did some extra work on a side yard. They were always professional and very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to use them again.
