Garden Design / Installation
I will design your garden to entertain your senses, fill your stomach, and provide a beautiful hideaway to escape stress and worry. I try to incorporate edible and medicinal plants, and educate my clients on how to care for, harvest, and use these plants for food and natural medicine. If you prefer, I can do the harvesting and preparation of medicinal herbs for you. I can incorporate edible mushrooms into your garden, as well as fruit and berries! I love to work with perennials, but I can also design, install, and manage your annual vegetables as well! I can prune your shrubs and trees, and I can teach you anything that you'd like to know more about! I will work to understand and satisfy your needs and desires for the garden while considering the site limitations.
