Sheila Schultz
is an award-winning Container Garden Designer whose love of plants started with two indoor gardens in her first home in the early 70’s. Cacti, succulents and tropicals were all used at one point or another to merge the inside with the outside. Her need to create ‘paintings’ with plants quickly expanded out the door.

Sheila’s style is unique in that the textural beauty of the foliage… be it from a perennial,  succulent, cactus or grass takes center stage in her designs. A splash of added color from flowers, if needed, always makes an impact.


Laurel Startzel is a residential and commercial Interior Designer with a genetically gifted passion for gardening. Merging the barrier between the indoors and out is an essential part of what Laurel does. With years of container gardening and design experience under her belt, she has really found her niche for bringing unique and timeless designs to the indoors and out, while working hand-in-hand with Sheila to produce one-of-a-kind container designs.

Laurel is a sucker for texture and movement within container designs. She’s always up for a challenge and loves working with found objects and vertical designs. She sees outdoor living as an extension of one’s home and loves to build on the unique style and preferences of the client in order to take her designs above and beyond their expectations.
