About the designer

Molly Spell Artz is a VSLD Certified Landscape Designer and a Virginia Certified Horticulturist. She has a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University's School of the Arts, and post graduate education in Landscape Design and Horticulture from both the University of Richmond and J. Sargeant Reynolds College.   

Molly’s father, the late Bill Spell, was a landscape architect with expertise in the famous Gillette gardens seen across Virginia. He is a huge reason why Molly became more interested in plants and pursued a career in landscape design. She is forever grateful to him for this gift. 

She loves gardening, mostly while working outside with her son at her side and flock of ducks quacking and foraging nearby.
