Our History

Carol Lawless founded Sand Hill Fine Gardening & Landscaping in 2004, but she started her horticulture career in the late 1980s working in the Bicentennial Garden in Greensboro. Carol was one of four people who developed the Greensboro Arboretum in Lindley Park from the ground up. Before starting Sand Hill, Carol worked as a landscape supervisor for the City of Greensboro, overseeing the city government building grounds. An Ohio native, Carol studied at Bowling Green State University. The name Sand Hill comes from the road Carol lived on near the Ohio River where she imagined living off the grid. Naming her business Sand Hill was a way to bring that dream of sustainability with her to North Carolina.

Our Philosophy

Sand Hill Fine Gardening is a landscaping company dedicated to the earth and all of its inhabitants. We create outdoor living spaces that are beautiful places for our clients as well as hospitable homes for butterflies, bees, birds, worms and other such creatures. We start by asking questions and listening to our clients, and then working hard to deliver the very highest quality gardening and landscaping services. You can count on us to be creative, efficient, respectful and responsive.


Sand Hill is proud to do business with businesses in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina. From the soil and the mulch to the plants and the trees, everything we use on your project is sourced from local companies whenever possible.


Sand Hill cares about the earth and all of its inhabitants. That's why we use organic products and plants when available. We use organic matter to enhance the hard-packed North Carolina clay, benefiting both your gardens and Mother Earth.
