About Us


deborahThe Captured Garden has worked throughout New England creating container gardens, and designing gardens for clients who want their homes to be beautiful, not typical.  By using custom designs that showcase uncommon plants we create combinations for our clients that are anything but cookie cutter. Our goal, when the project is completed, is to hear “It’s perfect, it’s just what I wanted,” followed quickly by “What is that beautiful plant, I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Deborah Trickett, owner of The Captured Garden, is an award-winning container garden designer whose work has been featured in The Boston Globe, Garden Gate magazine, New England Home magazine and on the TV show New England Dream Home. She is a Massachusetts Certified Horticulturist and a frequent lecturer on container gardening at the Boston Flower and Garden Show, as well as the Philadelphia International Flower Show.  She also teaches classes and workshops at the Arnold Arboretum in Boston.
