So what is artful garden consulting and what can LION-ARTED do for you?

The services that I provide are broad. There is no one category to describe the work I perform. The list is expansive. I am combining over ten years of formal art education with several years of study in the areas of horticulture and landscape design in addition to over thirty years of gardening and over three years of landscape maintenance to help guide home and property owners make decisions with regards to the practical use of and aesthetic appeal and enjoyment of their gardens.

My website is to be primarily used as a portfolio or a visual explanation of the variety of projects I can manage and execute. I have compiled a sample list of projects to assist you in determining if it is appropriate to utilize my services:

  • A homeowner may have had a landscape installed ten or more years ago - it is tired and needs a pick-me-up or it is not working for them as they had expected and they need to incorporate a small change

  • Small-scale landscape design such as a townhouse patio, a single-family home side yard or a portion of a larger yard

  • Custom hand-painted garden art, including murals

  • Guidance in how to orient and where to position garden art to include sculpture, birdbaths, fountains, and more

  • Guidance in how to place furniture, determine traffic patterns, increase ease of access and use

  • Custom containers filled with either annuals, perennials, succulents or a combination thereof

  • Develop vignettes or areas that serve a single purpose such as a small sitting area, the placement of a hammock, foot bridge, etcetera

  • Staging a property for resale – increasing curb appeal

  • Open to many other garden-related issues

I hope this helps. If you have any questions, the best method of contacting me is by email.
