Horticulture expert provides solutions for beautifying and rebalancing your outdoor space. Garden design documents such as plant lists, planting maps, and hand-drawn seasonal renderings, $75 per document. Pruning for roses, fruit trees, vines, and shrubs, from February 15th to March 30th. Whether you're looking for a light pruning, adding a few plants, or a total renovation, scope of work is typically 2-5 hours. Bartering or special rates are possible, ie I would be excited for a yard-to-meadow conversion planting for my portfolio, and would be open to an at-cost planting for a sunny accessible site.
I am a gardener and naturalist specializing in low maintenance and native plants, following the guidance of "right plant, right place." I love to see what beneficial pollinators can be attracted to a garden, and what ecosystem services they provide. I'm fascinated by the interplay of urban and wild spaces, and how outdoor areas can be enjoyed and maintained with as little effort as possible.
10 years of gardening and botany experience, including at the High Line, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Sewanee Herbarium, meadow restoration, organic farming, and arboriculture. 5 years of urban horticulture practice, with clients in Ditmas Park, Midwood, Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Bed Stuy, and Bushwick.
