My name is Criselda Brooks and I am the owner of CJ's Landscape Design. Horticulture has fascinated me as far back as I can remember. As a child, I spent as much time as I could planting seeds, watering plants, and tending to my small bean garden. Even though I always loved plants and being surrounded by nature, I wanted to help people and to make a difference in the lives of others. After completing a Master's Degree in Sociology in 2006, I began a career in social services where I worked with vulnerable populations for over a decade. 

When I bought my first house in 2014, working on the yard brought back so many happy memories. It felt great to feel the earth in my hands again and to create something beautiful with plants, mulch, and rock. Pretty soon, my interest in using plants and nature to create outdoor art grew and I yearned to do something with my hobby.

During that time, I realized that there was a great need for landscaping companies who do both the designing and the installation. I decided that it would be a natural fit for me to start my own landscaping business to fill in that gap. I took my first steps towards becoming an entrepreneur by completing a landscape design class. I received my landscape design certification in March of 2016. Shortly thereafter, I decided it was time to give back to the community in a different way.

I started CJ's Landscape Design: 1) to help home owners and investors add beauty and value to their homes, 2) to help my fellow neighbors enjoy their yards and homes as much as I do, and 3) to add value to our city and local communities while instilling a sense of pride.

I strive to hire the most professional, hard-working, and experienced crews so that your project turns out perfect and on time. We are insured to give you a piece of mind, while we are working on your property. At CJ's Landscape Design, we design, install, and maintain with your needs in mind!
