I am a landscape designer with many years in business. I work for a select group of clients that want honest and professional work . I specialize in low maintenance, deer resistant plantings that are distinctive of my clients tastes and needs. I do not cut lawns or do weekly maintenance.
I love creating new environments and redoing old and tired gardens. I aim to please my customers and do not sell anything they do not need or which is harmful to the environment.
