Gardens4U, 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 have the ability to (virtually) design gardens anywhere in the world, using a computer program. All I need from you is a JPEG and specifics about your area. Contact me for more information.

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.
