FR Review:
Kari Katzander's recently received a 2004 Golden Trowel award only reaffirms the client kudos she has been getting for years. Kari and Andrew Katzander and their small team at the landscaping firm Mingo Design have a reputation for offering brilliance on a budget. The firm designs, installs and maintains a variety of gardens and grounds throughout Fairfield/ Westchester and New York City. Kari Katzander brings a strong family background in contracting, having gained experience with her father's company restoring farms and farmhouses. After a confident fifteen-year run owning landscape maintenance and design company on Fishers Island, she brings considerable practical construction and installation knowledge to her position as the creative director of Mingo Design. Andrew Katzander contributes a design and contracting resume that includes nods from The New York Botanical Garden to the Pratt Institute.

The Katzander couple strives to "bring the outside in and the inside out" in their designs. Sources mention their commitment to designing for all four seasons, their use of color and the trust they instill in clients. The firm's commitment to finding the best craftsmen to implement its designs has led to its evolution to include contracting work, bringing the Katzanders full circle. In addition, a request that Kari Katzander use her eye for color to coordinate her clients' interior decor with their newly installed Mingo Design garden has led them to expand the firm's repertoire. Having recently established the firm in the contracting and interior design worlds, they have arrived with their latest venture in designing the rooftop terrace for MTV's The Real World.

Representative Client Comments:
"Mingo Design walked the land as well as viewed photos and videos of the property, along with evaluating each room of the house to get ideas." "Kari was exceptional in ‘hearing out' my ideas and incorporated them into the final design." "I have a wonderful honeysuckle fence for privacy, which bloomed very quickly." "Our landscaping at a seaside house along the Connecticut shore two hours from New York City was masterfully conceived and executed by Mingo."
