Hi, I’m Joanne Shaw, proprietor of Down2Earth Landscape Design. I focus on helping you use plants to design a beautiful garden. One that reflects your personality and helps create maximum curb appeal to increase the value of your home.
I work with you to interpret your needs and desires to transform your garden into a beautiful, green living space. Your landscape should fit your lifestyle, and create a usable and functional space that you will enjoy for years to come.
I started out just like you: I had a garden with challenges, and as I worked in my garden, I realized I had a passion for it and for helping others. I graduated from Ryerson University with a certificate in Landscape Design and have had 15 years’ experience designing gardens in Durham Region, plus a decade in landscape and related businesses, both for my own clientele and with established local nurseries.
I am also the host of Down the Garden Path, my gardening radio show on www.realityradio101.com. Each Monday evening at 7 pm EST, The show is now a Podcast available on Apple Podcasts with some past episodes available on my website as well. I offer down-to-earth practical advice for homeowners; discussing all things plants, garden, and landscape design. Check out past episodes on my blog. I also offer a newsletter that helps you maintain your garden on a regular basis.
At Down2Earth Landscape design, I am passionate about creating gardens for real people with busy lives, and I focus on working with my clients and trusted contractors to create a great landscape. I provide a seamless service, confident that your garden or landscape design project will exceed your expectations. I invite you to view my portfolio and see what my clients say about my service.
I look forward to working with you!
