DIY landscaping & garden design for home owners

Did you know that landscaping can add tens of thousands of dollars to the value of your home? In fact, it is one of the few home improvements that not only adds value (about 6-12%) immediately, but also increases in value as the years go by. There’s more to landscaping than sticking a couple flowers and shrubs in the ground, though. Property value can skyrocket when you have a sophisticated design. So, while you don’t need a designer, you do need a DESIGN. Otherwise, you’re just wasting your money.

I’m Amy and I help DIYers like you create impressively beautiful gardens that will add value to your home, show off your personality and suit your lifestyle. My straight-forward process will help you SOLVE landscape problems like lack of privacy, too much maintenance and even awkward layouts. You don’t need an expensive degree or expert drawing skills to create a space you’ll love.

No more mowing the lawn 3 days a week. No more trimming, weeding and digging– unless you want to, of course! My unique system for easily combining gardening with design is here– and it’s so much more fun than just plopping some plants in the ground. Sign up below and I’ll show you how it’s done.
