About The Blog

My Experience is in Zones 3-5

I spent my childhood on a beef farm in northern MN where we learned about most of the trees and plants in the woods and relied on a vegetable garden to support our family of four. 

I worked for 23 years as a graphic designer, while I continue transforming my outdoor spaces in the places I lived. My love for gardening led me to combine my interests and work for Gardening How-To magazine. For the past 5 years, I switched gears and worked for a design and build landscaping company. We did a variety of projects from landscape maintenance to total renovation and design for both residential and commercial properties.
