Few of us can afford to spend thousands of dollars for a landscape designer to come to our yard, but many of us would invest a few hundred dollars to get some expert advice. You may be a new gardener, or a veteran garden who would like a fresh eye.

Through my work producing more than 150 garden stories for Better Homes & Gardens magazines and many years of writing gardening stories forĀ  magazines and newspapers, I have picked up tips from local gardeners as well as many celebrity landscape designers that I have met such as Roger Swain, former host of The Victory Garden; Penelope Hobson, noted English designer; and Doug Hoerr, known for creating the fabulous planters on Michigan Avenue.

As your garden coach, I will come to your yard and help you make it the dream garden you want it to be.
