As a Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional, Mstr. Watershed Steward, Mstr. Gardener and Mstr. Naturalist I give educational talks and offer landscape assessments, mainly to address problems and grant wishes – using native plants. I educate people about the value of sustainable landscaping and help them identify the best native plant to solve a problem or grant a wish. Want privacy? There’s a native plant for that! Want to control runoff? Plenty of great native options! Want to attract pollinators? Feed the birds? Lots of choices – trees, shrubs and herbaceous native plants. Stressed out…want to add some serenity to your life? Native plants can do that too. If you want to create a functional landscape that is beneficial to our waterways let me introduce you to some knockout natives!

About Us:

I’m a volunteer – a very busy one. It’s just me and my red pickup truck. I’m on my community board where I focus on erosion control and stormwater runoff. For the past 5 years I’ve been planting selections of native plants in my home landscape – lots of them. I’m trying to grow every plant in the U.S. Fish & Wildlife – Chesapeake Bay Watershed guidebook, especially those that can solve problems like prevent erosion, filter runoff or sustain a butterfly population. Studying plants, properly siting them, challenging the literature that says ‘drought tolerant’ or ‘withstands inudation’, I learn by ‘growing’. The more I learn the better I can help others. I am an incessant reader and I attend lectures year-round; being a life-long learner is how you learn to adapt and improve your value to others. I believe native plants are what is going to save the Bay, its tributaries and all the species that live in, on and around it.

Years of Experience: I’ve been gardening all of my adult life. Have had a compost for 35 years – less going to the landfill and my ‘black gold’ keeps my plants well nourished.
