Happy Summer! My 2019 landscape maintenance schedule is full. I do have availability for gardening consultations and landscape design. I am growing cut flowers at Red Tail Gardens, and this is the interim website. Blooms are happening, so be in touch!

Get your locally grown bouquet while blooms last! Just $15 for a handmade arrangement from Red Tail Gardens. Contact me by phone or email to place your order. Happy fall!



Here’s a few more pictures to show you what’s been going on out at Red Tail Gardens:

It’s hard to get any work completed in this garden when all I want to do is sit and stare at all of the Irises and Peonies.

Happy Spring! I have been given the incredible opportunity to grow cut flowers. I will also continue to garden full time too. With that said, I am completely booked out for the 2018 growing season and beyond.  A big thank you to family, friends and clients that have helped me get to a point where I can put my vision into reality. If you need a recommendation for gardening or design services, please call Durango Nursery or Native Roots. Happy gardening and growing!

Please see more information about rain barrels and saving water on 4Core’s website.  It’s now legal to harvest rain water in Colorado! There is one more class available to construct your own rain barrel!

I have the opportunity to care for a lot of Roses. I wanted to thank my friend and very talented gardener, Marybeth Jarrosak, for teaching me everything that I know about Roses. You are the best!
