Almost twenty years ago, I decided to give up business suits and high heels and go back to doing what I loved most…work in the dirt and continue learning more about plants, nature and the environment. This journey has been difficult at times, but also incredibly rewarding. The people I interact with – clients, teachers, suppliers, contractors and mentors – have been inspiring, sometimes challenging, but almost always fun to work with.
Currently, I really enjoy working with clients who want to embrace the challenge of creating beautiful outdoor spaces whilst balancing the yin and yang of dreams versus budgets. And at the same time factor in the ever-growing importance of understanding how our actions (or inactions) impact our local and global ecosystems. Everything we do, every decision we make matters, and it’s extremely important to me to make sure that the work we do has positive impacts.
