About Seeds Design, LLC


Natural Landscapes & Gardens.

As natural landscapers, Seeds Design focuses on bringing native plants, foliage, flowers, shrubs, and trees that thrive in the Hudson Valley to both residential and commercial properties.

For more than 14 years, Seeds Design has been the Hudson Valley's most trusted garden and landscape designer - working with both homeowners and commercial clients, such as, Ulster Savings Bank and Rhinebeck Bank.

Denise VandenShay

Denise has been in the Landscaping industry since the early 90’s and established Seeds Design LLC in 2007. Much of her knowledge has been through hands-on work as a greenhouse grower and greenhouse manager in the Hudson Valley. Denise has also worked with local landscapers in assisting with the design and installation of annual planting at commercial locations.

This experience, combined with an AAS in Interior Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and a BS in Art Education from SUNY New Paltz has resulted in a landscape company with flair and creativity with a personal touch.

Since an early age, Denise has been attached to the land and a conservationist at heart. She is passionate about her work as a designer, horticulturist and environmentalist. She selects materials that are a proper fit for their location, offer beauty, and are sustainable.

Denise develops long-term relationships with her clients and their gardens. Creating an outdoor environment that is livable and brings joy is a creation that takes time and commitment. Seeds Design plans, grows, maintains, and establishes long-living home gardens.

Our Raving Fans.

Denise of Seeds Design and her crew have been maintaining our extensive perennial beds and small shrubs for five years. Never have they looked so good - a challenge since there are no rows of the plants. The composted mulch she uses looks great and it's good for the soil. Denise is extremely pleasant and hardworking. We look forward to her and her crew's visits.

Harold & Jean Hyatt

Denise VandenShay and her Seeds Design crew have been doing work for our dealerships for a few years now, her work is creative, timely, and sustaining; her crew is conscientious, thorough, and they leave nothing behind. It has been a real pleasure and we look forward to continuing our relationship.

A few years ago my husband and I moved into a house with an utterly neglected front garden. I wanted to spruce it up but didn't know where to begin. Denise took one look and knew exactly what to do. She has a designer's eye, encyclopedic knowledge, and she loves getting her hands dirty. The garden and landscaping concept that Denise and her team created for us is swoon-worthy. Plus, she's a delight to work with -- a consummate pro.

I have been working with Seeds Design for over 10 years.... Denise has always delivered excellent design, installation, and maintenance for us no matter the project. She is fabulous to work with. Our first plant design and install project was actually indoors for our 2 story office which was so successful we had/have her design, install and manage the landscape for two other homes. We continue to rely on Denise and her team to keep our homes and office looking beautiful.
