Well just like plants and gardens keep growing and changing so must websites, especially websites about plants and gardens. Welcome to another new version of my website… I think it keeps getting better, that is the goal. What’s new… well more of “a designer look”… which was the goal. I enjoy working closely with Landscape Contractors but I am not one. I am a Landscape Designer and I enjoy it very much so I really wanted that to be clearer immediately when you visit my website that my focus is the design of your garden. I think we have accomplished that.
The second big change is this blog. I have wanted to do one for a while although the plethora of stale dated garden blogs out there did scare me a bit. As a landscape designer my work season is relatively short, I never really know when it’s going to start or end, when customers decide they want to change their garden, they want to do it now not after I have time to write a blog. So I understand that it can be challenging for people in our industry to keep writing… I will do my best!
I believe everyone can have a nicely beautifully designed and maintained garden, regardless of garden size or budget and I want to help as many as I can with that.
I was able to attend the Toronto Botanical Garden tour last week. It was very nice to tour the old and new gardens of Rosedale in downtown Toronto.

I love them and think they really can be a great feature in every garden. Here are a few examples:
