"We hosted a garden event at our furniture showroom and Charles King Sadler of King Garden Designs was kind enough to speak to our customers about landscape design for all seasons. For many people (myself included) the idea of re-configuring a landscape is an overwhelming process. Charles has an approachable and genuine personality that serves him well in his attentive approach to creating an outdoor haven. His knowledge of plants, flowers and design made our customers feel comfortable and confident that a beautiful landscape was something within reach. Thank you, Charles!
