My journey to become a landscape & garden designer began in my own back yard. In spring,summer and fall I would experiment endlessly with plant combinations and unique plants. In winter I would read and absorb any information on gardening and design I could find. After several years of self-taught learning and overflowing book shelves, I decided to enroll in horticulture and design courses through Guelph University. With that formal training I now work full-time as a garden and landscape designer in the Ottawa area.
