Orlando's Sustainable Landscape Design - 4X Best of Houzz!

page_type: prop_plus_profile
As a horticulturist, landscape designer, and Florida-friendly expert, I love to help design, teach, and encourage clients that they can have not only a beautiful garden but a sustainable, water-conserving, low-maintenance yard. In 2001, I designed the landscaping for the first home in Florida to be certified as a "green home." In 2002, Garden Gate magazine featured my quote “Every garden is unique with a multitude of choices in soils, plants and themes. Finding your garden theme is as easy as seeing what brings a smile to your face” on the magazine's back cover. Continuing my ten years teaching with the University of Florida Extension Florida Yards & Neighborhoods, I work with and advise cities, counties, water management districts, home owner associations, custom builders and developers on Florida-friendly landscaping practices while following my heart’s desire of designing landscapes for private clients that are easy to maintain, water-conserving, and protect Florida’s precious resources. When not putting my hands in a client’s backyard, you can find me digging in my own garden, looking for slugs and lubber grasshoppers ~ creatures, that I swear, do not have souls ~ aided in that effort by MacTavish, our legendary Scottish Westie lubber hunter. My landscape designs are uniquely infused with genuine enthusiasm and expert knowledge of Florida-friendly landscaping. Let me know how I can inspire you with your own unique landscape that will be your own personal sanctuary. Please call me so we can meet and get started on the landscape of your dreams. "Who designed your landscape?" "SHE did!"
