My gardening business has been a huge part of my life for the past ten years, especially between April and October. During those months I design, create, and maintain gardens. Scroll down this page for more details and examples of my creations at Gardens4U. While I have cut back considerably on the maintenance portion, I still hope to take on several new designs per season.

Virtual Design with Gardens4U

Although my gardening business can only physically offer services in the west Ottawa (Ontario, Canada) area, I can (virtually) design gardens anywhere in the world. All I need from you is a JP.EG and specifics about your area. Contact me for more information.

2023 Update

Although I will not be doing any garden maintenance (for others) this season, I will take on a few new garden design projects. First come, first served! Contact me if interested.

I am also excited about helping my niece with her June wedding decor, something I thoroughly enjoyed doing for a client a few summers ago. I will post some pictures later this season.

These are a few of my “before” and “after” pictures of the garden makeovers I have worked on over the years. The left column represents the “before” shots, with the right side the corresponding “after” shot…

Let me know what you think of these before and afters!

My Gardens by Bloom Time

These are the perennials (and a few annuals) that bloom in my garden throughout the season here in zone 4. Of course there are lots more, although I add more each year.
