COVID-19- I am conducting consultations at a distance and while wearing a face mask wherever necessary during the Covid-19 crisis. Now that we are 'stuck' at home we finally have the time to enjoy our gardens and outdoor spaces. Contact me for a consultation.
I offer container garden creations, garden coaching, landscape consultations and landscape designs in the Montreal area. I also write and offer presentations about gardening and landscaping. Whether you require a complete landscape renovation, a decorative container garden or just a little gardening advice, I would be pleased to assist you with your particular gardening issue. Please contact me for an appointment to discuss your needs further.
