about Jan

It has been my privilege to create wonderful outdoor spaces for wonderful people for over 30 years.


To do this, I have combined  my innate sense of good design, my goal to express life's beauty for myself and others, my passion for plants, and a good bit of knowledge and tenacity.


My knowledge has been gathered in many ways over many years through my college education (Bachelor of Fine Arts, University of Richmond), reading, designing, gardening and attending workshops and training. Most importantly, though, I have learned from first hand experience by listening to each client's dreams and challenges and then purposefully crafting a plan that puts all the pieces together.


When working with each new project, whether big or small, I am not satisfied until I have created a beautiful plan that accomplishes all these things!
