Informal, unscripted, organic and free-flowing
Gardens should add to the landscape, not dominate it
Full and lush border gardens with a distinct edge between the garden and the lawn
An edge provides just enough structure so the garden does not look chaotic
A garden should not be hard to maintain. With proper planting and mulching, weeds are kept to a minimum
Resourceful…use what you have, divide existing plants for new (free!) plants
Be patient…your plants and gardens will grow with time…some things are best left unhurried
The Simple Consult: Need some suggestions but plan to do the work yourself? No problem! I am happy to advise on existing plant/weed removal, new plant selection/placement, as well as, plant relocation. You will be amazed with what you can do with what you might already have!
What the…?: Perhaps you just moved into your home (and yard) and don’t know what is what. I can help you isolate the good stuff from the bad.
Feeling overgrown/overwhelmed: Your garden might just need a good pruning to help keep it in check…a good pruning will also keep your plants healthy, lush and beautiful.
Design and Implement: Not happy with your current gardens or lack thereof? Show me what you like and what you don’t like. Based on my experience, I will make some recommendations. Together we will outline a plan and I will get to work!
Garden Maintenance: My job does not stop there! With your permission, I want to visit your gardens regularly! As your plants mature, many can be divided and placed in new gardens or simply spread out for a full, lush garden. This is my passion! Gardens that explode with new colors and textures as the seasons change…never quite knowing what is going to pop up next!
