I'd like to
simplify your life!
You want to be a better gardener, but you just don’t have time to learn everything. Wouldn’t it be great if a knowledgeable person came to your home to help you identify and care for the valuable plants in your yard?
From sowing seed to seasonal pruning to DIY projects, learn the gardening skills that YOU want to learn. Do you want to update a tired landscape? I can provide guidance and suggestions based on my 15+ years of experience in the landscape industry and as an eco-educator. You’ll learn how to be a confident and capable gardener.
Save your time, money, and sanity while we simplify your gardening tasks

Tisa is the gardener I aspire to be, but she also understands those of us who are not natural gardeners. She helped me plan and execute our garden redesign with our environment, our family uses and my willingness to maintain it, foremost in mind. We are close to the garden she envisioned ... and I'm loving it. [Liz L.]
Gardening on the Radio!
I had the honor of hosting a weekly segment on "Inside the Great Outdoors" with Joe Kulis on Sunday mornings at WHK 1420 AM (Cleveland). The best way I can describe the show? It's three hours of sitting around a campfire wtih funny, educated, and passionate outdoorsmen who discuss everything from fishing lures to astronomy to chasing water buffalo in Africa. For seven months, we talked about gardening and whatever serendipity throws our way... My segment starts at 9 am if you want to "listen live" at www.igoradio.com; otherwise, click on a past show below!
