Do you dream of creating Pinterest-worthy container gardens? Are you frustrated that no matter what you try your pots either fizzle out mid-season or just look like a jumble of odd plants rather than a cohesive, dramatic medley? You're not alone. I've received dozens of emails from homeowners just like you: frustrated, disappointed, and at a loss for what is going wrong.
It's time for a change & I can help.
As a professional container designer I have created hundreds of dramatic combinations for countless satisfied clients, taught container design to nursery professionals as well as keen home gardeners, and had my designs published in some of the top magazines and books in the United States. Failure is not an option. Every planter has to look fabulous - every time, and I've learned the tricks to ensure success. Tricks I'd love to share with you.
Hallmarks of a well designed container
- Rich layers of foliage and flowers that completely fill out the container, yet don't look overgrown
- A cohesive color palette - not a confusing mish-mash
- Exciting plant combinations - with a few surprises
- Longevity - no more petering out mid-summer
- Gloriously lush and truly abundant, even when newly planted
- Well balanced in form and scale
Is that how your containers look?
If not, don't worry.

Will the plants work for my area?
I have primarily focused on summer container designs, using a wide assortment of trees, shrubs, perennials, edibles, indoor plants, groundcovers, and annuals.
