Need a Garden Coach?
Many people love to garden but may lack the self confidence or knowledge to get the job done. Cindy comes along side lending support, expertise and cheerleading abilities to build the garden and gardener up. A Little push with some solid design ideas and plant knowledge is enough to get everyone going in the right direction. Cindy can also supervise projects to make sure the home owner/gardener is well represented and gets their garden needs and wants met.
Herbs, vegetables and fruit are attractive as well as functional and Cindy specializes in edible landscape and container designs. Cindy believes Herb and Kitchen gardens meet the needs of every gardener; food, flowers, medicine, beauty, aromatherapy and joy for the soul. Habitat for friendly bugs, microorganisms and critters are just some healthy by-products the garden and gardener benefit from. Cindy understands that most people these days have less time and space to garden so she designs simple, easy to maintain gardens that are beautiful, fun and practical.
Cindy has worked with commercial and residential clients.
Want your Garden Photographed?
Our gardens say a lot about who we are and it is fun to have a photo ‘brag’ book, calendar or framed artwork to show friends and family or to gaze at in the gray of winter to reminisce about past blooms. All gardens are beautiful even if they are not perfect. Cindy loves to use her cracked pot perspective on photography to delight gardeners. Contact her to discuss details and set up a garden shoot.
