Landscaping & Lawn Care
Provide garden design and landscape consultations that focus on high-impact, low-maintenance, pollinator-friendly plants. I was awarded the 2020 Best of Kennebunk Award in the Gardener category.
More than 1,000 gardeners have benefited from my easy-to-follow, step by step design recommendations for transforming gardens into more luxuriant, low-maintenance landscapes or creating brand new ones.
I’ll provide sought-after design solutions for reducing maintenance time; replacing frustrating plants with top-performing perennials, shrubs, evergreens, trees and/or annuals; creating attractive foundation plantings; tackling poor soil problems; addressing your gardening questions; and more. I will also provide a list of the recommended plants.
I have presented over 400 garden and design lectures to more than 40,000 gardeners in 21 states. In 2014 I received the Gold Medal award from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society for “Exceptional teaching and writing that increases public enjoyment and appreciation of horticulture.” I've written four gardening books, the most recent being The Budget Wise Gardener and The Right-Size Flower Garden.
