"What a great experience! Pamela provided such helpful advice. As a (very) inexperienced gardener, I did not know where to start. She recognized and respected my beginning skills, budget, and goals for attractive garden areas on my property. Her advice was clear and practical. She guided me through preparing the soil, selecting appropriate flowers, and requirements for those flowers to thrive. I could not have done all the work without her coaching. Thanks to Pamela, I had a beautiful landscape that served as a backdrop to a family wedding!"

We recently had to remove a large Ash tree from our property. Because it was located in a low, depressed area, it has been rather perplexing to us as to what to put in its place. I contacted Pamela and after viewing the area, she knew just what to do - a Rain Garden! After receiving her comprehensive and easy to read report with photos and planting suggestions, we cannot thank her enough! We sincerely appreciated her advice and expertise and have confidence in the end results. Thanks so much, Pamela!!!
