About Cat
I have been able to translate my genuine interest in people into a collaborative exchange of ideas and visions that resulted in Cat Valand Landscape Design. I am a passionate landscape designer serving Raleigh, NC and the surrounding areas. For me, the effort is only successful when the partnership between client and designer goes beyond what the homeowner hoped to achieve. I strive to reach this goal on each and every project I undertake.

To sum it up, I love what I do, and my clients’ ultimate satisfaction remains the central focus of each endeavor.
