John had lots of interesting stories and experiences to share about gardening and designing gardens with native plants. His practical advise seemed approachable to both a new(ish) gardener and a more experienced one. It was a fun afternoon, I highly recommend attending one of his talks!
For the love of native plants!

Not only did he clearly explain the environmental importance of native plants, he also gave excellent examples of how to use them effectively in "real world" gardens. As easy going and comfortable at the podium, as any one I've ever seen. Great presentation!

John is able to present to an audience his knowledge and experience about landscape design and engage them at the same time.
He has a natural talent to educate and inspire.

John delivers an interesting talk on use of natives in creating an inviting landscape. his presentation is low key but effective in getting his message across. His slides of before and after work are compelling.

John Magee designed a 100% native landscape around my western Loudoun County house. I also heard him deliver a Smart Landscaping workshop for an Eastern Loudoun homeowner association. John combines an environmental vision with awareness of practical realities. He is gifted at outlining simple steps people can take to convert to native landscapes, and at highlighting the benefits in terms of cost and labor savings, wildlife habitat and water conservation, and aesthetics. He is also excellent at tailoring his message to diverse audiences, with the aid of compelling 'before' and 'after' photos.
