Vella Gardens LLC is a fine gardening company specializing in residential garden design, garden maintenance and seasonal container design. Owner Rebecca Taliercio earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts and English Literature from Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts in 2005. After college, Rebecca pursued her passion for natural design and earth stewardship with a seasonal apprenticeship in organic perennial cultivation and farm-to-table floral design at Hay House Farm in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. From there, Rebecca spent the next six years gardening professionally in the greater Boston area, from planting gardens on Boston rooftops to maintaining acres of perennial gardens on estates in the Boston suburbs. Rebecca started her own company, Vella Gardens, in 2011 upon moving to Rhode Island.
From 2014 - 2016 Rebecca joined forces with gardener and designer Margaret Mudge of Good Earth Gardens in Ashland, MA (https://www.facebook.com/goodearthgardensma). Rebecca and Peggy worked collaboratively, fusing their passions and skills to create unique and beautiful gardens and containers throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts until Peggy relocated to Louisiana in 2016.
