Helping people enjoy Nature in their own backyard is satisfying work. I believe gardens can be therapeutic, and I love helping people connect to the outdoors.
In my Landscape Design business, I strive to be environmentally conscious. I buy recycled paper and drive an electric car. Within the confines of the client's needs and desires, I choose plants that need less water, less fertilizer, and less pruning. I try to reuse existing plants and trees. I suggest permeable paving choices to keep water on the property.
I love to blog about gardens, ideas and design. I enjoy sharing information about plants and gardening, and I used to post pictures of gardens I'd see around town. Examining the landscapes around me is inspiring and helps me stay up to date with trends and creative solutions. Though lately I find myself with less time to craft these posts and keep up with the Blog section of this site, I continue adding occasional updates on my own projects. Most of the photographs in the blog are mine. If I include photos from an outside source to illustrate a point, when none of my own photos will do, I always acknowledge the source.
Thank you for visiting my site!
