Garden designer Diane Guidone

  • Discover what your home’s garden might have looked like originally
  • Re-design that look in a way that works for today, given current garden pests, urban pollution, soil compaction and more.
  • Plan practical changes over time to achieve the look you want


Diane Guidone has been designing garden spaces for more than ten years, in Europe and the US.  Her philosophy is that garden designs should unite the architectural features of a home and the surrounding landscape, and create outdoor living spaces that complement the owner's lifestyle, needs, and uses for the garden.  

Her design process begins with an assessment of the home's architecture and style and an evaluation of the existing landscape.  Her gardens are developed with plant specimens whose shape, color, structure, and growth provide continual pleasure and visual interest throughout the year. 

She studied horticulture and garden design at The English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden in London, has been designing gardens for more than ten years.  Her designs include the beautiful gardens at Middletown Township Main LIbrary. 

Ms. Guidone has received several awards for her designs, and in 2011 was the recipient of the Hamilton Award for Dedication and Outstanding Commitment to the Rutgers Gardens. 

Sponsored by the Atlantic Highlands Historical Society at 7:30 pm Wednesday, April 18 in the Senior Center in the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor.  Free and open to the public, light refreshments will be served.
