After designing gardens for twenty-five years, my focus now is solely on native plantings. Natives are low-maintenance and attract beneficial insects which in turn attract wildlife.  I see this in my yard all year long.

To schedule an appointment:

This is my first all-native garden design and installation in 2009.  A lot of time went into research and ordering plants that weren’t readily available either. The plan allows for birds to enjoy the fall berries of the serviceberry and viburnum.

First all native garden

This design is called “native options”.  It pits standard nursery finds against native plants.  Fortunately, these natives are easy to find in the southeast.
