The Charmed Garden

From Planning to Planting, and from Harvest to Table.

Include hardscape in your garden for seasonal interest.

Make your garden a reflection of your own unique style, not your neighbor’s.  Don’t just put in a concrete walkway, go large! Put in a sweeping walkway of oversize flagstone which invites you to stop and notice the garden before heading inside.

Adding unique hardscape such as this curvey walkway keeps your garden interesting even when the color is not.

I received my certification as a Landscape Designer from Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois and I received my horticulture education through classes at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois and through the master gardener program at Univ of Illinois Extension. In my designs, I love mixing veggies and herbs with native perennials and flowering bushes as you can see from the pictures of my own yard. I love creating gardens for people who like to garden, not just installing traditional landscaping, but actually creating gardens that the homeowner connects to personally. I love that my clients who thought they couldn't grow anything now have green thumbs, because all it takes is the right plant in the right site. And I really love that my clients become my friends in the process of creating their gardens.
