I am very excited and grateful for the opportunity to be doing what I love. Paula was a great mentor for me. The environment, gardening and the outdoors are serious passions of mine and I now have the ability to combine them! I look forward to helping people create and maintain outdoor spaces that will enhance their lives, and hopefully the ecosystem.
I am open to new ideas and suggestions, and am especially interested in edible landscaping, ecosystem support and 'restorative' land care - using natives and/or any plants that support insects, birds and wildlife in general. However, I am also an artist by nature and love garden design and envisioning beautiful and serene gardens and landscapes.
I have a particular passion for shrubs and trees and their ability to add dimension to a landscape. I believe that, like ground covers, small trees and shrubs are often underused in landscape design. They offer a large variety of heights, shapes, flowers, colors and types of foliage and they are very low maintenance once they're established.
