About Me

Being an avid gardener myself, I am very aware of the
challenges we face gardening in the Chinook Zone. However, I
truly believe that it is possible to create fabulous gardens
if we work with our site. Our properties are as individual
as we are and so our landscapes should meet the needs and
conditions of the site as well as the owners.

My training started with the Master Gardener course in 1997.
This has been supplemented with the Ornamental Plants
Specialist Certificate and further courses in landscape
design. Designing spaces since 2000, many of my designs have
won awards in the annual Calgary Horticultural Society’s
garden contest. I enjoy sharing my love and knowledge of
gardening through speaking, teaching and writing.

One of my goals is to educate gardeners about the benefits of
creating water- wise gardens that are not only
environmentally sustainable but incredibly beautiful and
functional as well.
