Specialties & Services
Landscape Installation & Maintenance
Water (Gardens / Features / Rain Gardens / Drainage & Irrigation)
I provide services to large and small residential and commercial clients. My services and styles are tailored to the specific needs of each client. I design and install inspiring sustainable landscapes that include hardscapes, patios, walkways, fire pits, water features, and permeable driveways and surfaces.
I specialize in site-sensitive problem solving and space planning. I can provide scale-drawn master plans (hardscapes and plantings) as well as on-site consultations utilizing spray paint and flags for instant visualization.
I personally oversee the design, installation, and maintenance of shrubs, beds, and gardens. Plant materials include annuals, perennials, bulbs, roses, tropical, and containers. I excel at pruning in styles that best harmonize with the existing landscape: natural contour, formal, rejuvenation, and dormant.
I am a Licensed Ohio Pesticide Applicator and use mostly organic products. I can assist with different strategies for deer management, and provide coaching for clients who enjoy gardening on their own.
