My business grew out of a desire to inspire people grow and use gardens with a creative eye. In 2004, my garden coaching, design, lectures, and freelance writing became a full-time business named Creative Gardener. I know people have many opportunities to learn how to garden, but to inspire by what plants and design can truly do to make a garden their own is what drives the work I do. I enjoy watching that evolution from being a gardener who buys plants to being a gardener who creates a garden.
