I designed my first garden when I was 8 years old, using crayons, graph paper, and several of my dad's seed catalogs.

Once I grew up, I decided to get serious about my hobby, spent a few years working for a garden maintenance company, and earned a degree in landscape design.

Now I own my own company, LK Landscape Design, where I focus on beauty, functionality, and sustainability in both my design and maintenance services. My goal is to create spaces that fit a client's lifestyle, but that also make the world a better place!

I'm also very passionate about helping others become better gardeners and designers. I started doing this with a blog, where I write about sustainable garden  design and maintenance.

In 2016, I released my first online course, Gardening to Attract Birds & Butterflies.  This was quickly followed by additional courses focusing on DIY Garden Design and Earth Friendly Pest Control.

In 2017, I launched my podcast, The Earth Friendly Gardener. My hope is that it provides yet another way to learn practical, simple steps to design, create, and maintain a garden or landscape.
