Karen Lindquist studied horticulture in the Bay area of San Francisco in the mid-90's.
After moving across the country to relocate in New England, she became a MA certified horticulturist in 2002 and started Thorn & Thistle Landscaping in 2005.
The company is primarily focused on sustainable landscape designs and practices, with a particular interest in creating safe gardens for pollinators and gardens that will endure with less water (xeriscaping).
We are a small company, never more than four people, who service the greater Boston area.
