Good design not only provides a beautiful and satisfying space, but solves problems and makes the most of your site.
I am a WA state Certified Professional Horticulturist and lifelong gardener. My interest in all manner of plants and the sheer joy of playing in the dirt has led me to believe that gardens should reflect their owners and be restful and inspiring as well as a lot of fun. Not a lot of work!
Gardens and outdoor living spaces that are vibrant and alive with birds, butterflies, bees and frogs, easy to care for and a joy to spend time in are the reward for using sustainable methods and treading lightly on the earth. This is accomplished by using the right plants in the right place, organics, recycling and re-purposing materials, and incorporating natives and edibles into the overall design.
