Would you like to create a place to relax and make memories with your family and friends? Would you like to take care of your patch of earth in a way that benefits you, your community and the wildlife that shares it?
Would you like to invite more life, edibles and seasonal interest to your yard while solving challenges such as privacy, poor drainage, erosion and deer browsing? Are you interested in learning more about how your yard can impact your community?
Originally from northwest New Jersey, I have lived in Harrisburg, PA with my family for the last 32 years. I turned my passion for garden and floral design into my second career beginning my journey in the green industry about 20 years ago. I love collaborating with my clients and their natural surroundings to create authentic outdoor spaces that are functional, meaningful and enduring. I will help you create a garden that brings you joy, meaning and connection using natural design methods as well as plants and materials that benefit you and the wildlife that shares your patch of earth. I enjoy working with other colleagues and professionals to bring your vision to life. I continue to learn best ecological/design/horticultural practices and look forward to sharing that knowledge with you and our community. Outstanding service, client/colleague relationships, authenticity, transparency and environmental stewardship are of the utmost importance to me.
