My gardening career started at home with my mother and grandmother. I developed a love of plants and the peaceful times spent in the garden.I Graduated from the University of Alberta with a BSc in Conservation Biology. During my schooling, I developed my passion for plants and chose to major in plant ecology / botony. I am very familiar with Alberta’s native species and how plants deal with our intense and often bizarre climatic conditions. I also have experience identifying common pests, diseases and fungi. In addition to schooling, I have spent much of my adult life working within the industry. I am a proud member of the Horicultural Society of Calgary which provides plenty of new opportunities to learn and grow as a gardener.

My inspiration to start my own gardening business came from looking at many properties around the city and seeing much of the same thing. Many landscapers love to use the same plants over and over again because they are “safe”. But there are so many options available that can thrive in Calgary that are so under utilized. I love putting my creative mind to work by designing beds and offering creative suggestions for “difficult areas”. Gardening is my passion and I love to help people create that perfect outdoor space that can look fabulous all season. I know how important it is to spend as much time as possible in our yards in the few short months of summer that we get so let’s make it a beautiful place to be!
