You Don’t Need to be a Garden Designer to Have a Beautiful Garden
Our first garden was a 3 ft x 7 ft section of lawn, dug up, surrounded with landscape bricks, and planted with perennials rescued from a friend’s garden.
No soil preparation. No grand plan. No color scheme. We had no idea how to make a garden. Yet despite this inexperience, those flowers grew like champs and sparked an obsession.
Fast Forward to Today
Susan trained as a Master Gardener at Michigan State University, completed garden design courses, and now spends every waking moment in the garden. Tom is a certified ditch digger (Susan certified him), photographer, and the official “figure-out-how-to-build-this-thing-we-need” guy.

Our Garden is Our Refuge
Our garden is our refuge from the stresses of everyday life. It’s used as a creative retreat, photo shoot location, and weekend hangout. It’s a place to feel the sun on our heads, smell the soil and hear the birds. Our garden makes us happy.
If creating your own garden space is something you want to do, you’re invited to follow along with us while we figure out how to build our dream garden one-day-at-a-time.
