Grateful Beds grew out of a mutual passion for the beauty of a well imagined garden, backed by the ebb and flow of the Minnesota seasons. It was something beyond mere coincidence when Cory Barton and Libby Rahn met in 2012 bringing Cory’s love of creating original, exceptional garden design, together with Libby’s unbridled energy and passion for working in the earth, to create gardens with a little something extra.
In 2017 Cory took over from their wonderful beginnings and continues designing exceptional custom garden today.
Whether imaging new gardens or transforming existing beds, she combines a sense of whimsy with the unexpected, delivering eclectic and elegant gardens that manifest your dreams and desires.
Given her life experience (and plenty of them), her gardening expertise, and her profession in design, there was no question that she'd create unique gardens with plants and hardscape. Bringing a kind of energy and enthusiasm to your project which is contagious: a great time will be had by all.
Not only does she conceive of original garden concepts using uncommon plants (that play well with others AND come through Minnesota winters with ease) but she also 'rehabs' current garden designs using existing plant materials.
Her goal is to improve the quality of enjoyment in your garden in unexpected ways. She melds startling spatial concepts with your particular esthetic, punctuated with found objects and natural stone to uniquely sculpture your space.
Grateful Beds zero footprint garden philosophy minimizes your gardens impact on the environment. They do this by keeping water run-off from your home out of the city streets and out of the lakes. They stragically place rain barrels and beautiful rain gardens in the flow of your garden design and use organic products creating a natural oasis for wildlife and beneficial insects in your yard.
This is the garden design you’ve always wanted.
