About Me

Perennial Border in the fallI am a gardener with over 15 years of experience in maintenance and design for gardens big and small. My education includes the Ornamental Plant Materials Certificate from the School of the Chicago Botanic Garden and Master Gardener certification through the University of Illinois Extension. I enjoy pursuing additional education to deepen my understanding of specific gardening fields and trends. I am active in my neighborhood gardening club and contribute my time to community park and garden efforts. Perennials are my area of specialty but I also consult regarding annuals, shrubs, trees, and design elements and features. I have been consulting and coaching in the Chicagoland area since 2006.
