For beginner landscaping gardeners, these problems can be paralyzing… leaving you with a lot of uncertainty and stress about how to even GET STARTED.

I’m Amy and I help DIY beginner landscaping gardeners design impressively beautiful gardens that bring color to your landscape all four seasons, show off your personality and suit your lifestyle. 

My straight-forward process will help you SOLVE your landscape problems and turn you into the neighborhood garden guru that everyone goes to for advice. I’ll show you how to design a great plan, choose the right plants and cut down on unnecessary maintenance… no expensive degree or expert drawing skills required 🙂

This is a stress-free gardening zone (seriously)

We don't break our backs with unnecessary gardening chores.

Instead, we create a plan and choose low-maintenance plants so we don’t need to fight to “make it work.”

We don't buy exotic plants that can't grow in our garden.

We don’t set ourselves up for failure and only pick plants that will grow and thrive in our conditions.

We believe that gardening is good for the soul.

Gardening should be fun, relaxing and creative. If it’s not… why should we bother?

I am a professional graphic designer and a garden lover. It didn’t take long for me to realize that all the design tricks I use at my job could also be used in my garden! So, I created my own unique DIY beginner landscaping system that easily combines gardening with design. It’s so much more fun than just plopping random plants in the ground and hoping for the best.
