Real Life Garden Solutions is there to find out what the clients want of their outdoor space, and provide direction and solutions to achieving that desire. Janet will view the client property, hear their thoughts, help them define their wishes, contribute ideas, demonstrate principles, develop concept designs, then draw the plan and provide planting list, notes, and supply details.
- Sustainability: Although being environmentally friendly is assumed to be the rule in this “green industry”, it isn’t always clear how to implement green strategies, nor is it necessarily easy. Janet will always assist the client to incorporate the most sustainable practices in design and maintenance of their gardens. Ask me about Rain Gardens and Wildlife Gardens.

- Beauty: Our world is a spectacularly beautiful place, one that no man-made design could match. But as creative beings, made in the image of the great Creator, we can learn from the natural world to replicate some of that beauty in our home environments.
