Founding Story

Tilly was created by four best friends from high school; a talented landscape architect and three business-savvy homeowners looking for a better solution to designing their yards. What started as an experiment and labor of love, has quickly grown into an online platform serving thousands of homeowners across the U.S. and Canada. Using a digital design process, Tilly's customers enjoy a custom experience with a professional designer for a fraction of the traditional cost.


Tilly has expanded from design into Garden Coaching that helps homeowners maintain their landscape and Installation Support Services which offer virtual planning and oversight to help execute your plans.
