Serving the Triangle since 2005

 Shelley & Brad Cook
Owners, Carolina Garden Co.

Since 2005 we have provided expertise in landscape design and installations.   At Carolina Garden Company we will continue to provide unique quality designs to the Triangle Community.  

Our Plant Team is led by Shelley and our Hardscape Team is led by Brad. Shelley earned the prestigious Certified Plant Professional (CPP) designation by NCNLA and has over 20 years of plant experience. Brad is a licensed North Carolina Landscape Contractor (#3672) and a licensed Ornamental and Turf Pesticide Applicator (#39125).  He has been desigining and installing hardscape projects since 2016.  Due to the enormous amount of work and the shortage of workers, in addition to his own hardscaping team, Brad utilizes a seasoned sub-contractor company to accomplish projects in a timely manner. Valiente Hardscaping has earned the trust of the local community with same core values we believe at Carolina Garden Company. 


We believe in building trust with our customers and treating them respectfully. With that foundation in mind, we adhere to the following core values: 

  • Quality at the Right Price

  • Attention to Detail

  • Time Tested Installation

Quality at the Right Price

At Carolina Garden Company, we make it our personal policy to shop local in order to provide plants that are known to thrive in our region. We guarantee that your plants will be in the best condition when installed and we use quality products. That’s where trust is built, and quality at the right price is maintained. 


Attention to Detail

​​​We ensure that all installs are done correctly and according to the agreed design. We use quality products and pay close attention to your landscaping needs. We will make sure to answer all of your questions.  We do the job right, every time.

Time Tested Installation

Lets face it, anyone can plant a plant in the ground, and it may look good for a time. But, the true test is will it look good next year? Will it grow with the house or will it destroy your sidewalk? Will you love it next year just like you did when you planted it? For this reason, we work with our customers to create a unique vision for years to come. We are experts at knowing the plants specifications and promise to install plants that you will love season after season.
