A true kitchen garden is built on a wide range of vegetables, fruits, flower and herbs. Knowing when to start seeds indoors versus sowing them directly in the garden takes a bit of experience. And knowing what to grow will save you money and just make everything better. I can’t say enough about the importance of starting with a design before planting. When you start with a plan, it’s easier to select the right plants and visualize how to frame your space with borders and pathways.

I’ll give you individualized attention to make sure you are starting off with a design that is efficient, productive and beautiful.
