Meet your Designer

Hi! I’m Sharon. I’ve been designing and planting commercial and residential container gardens on the north side of Chicago since 2007. What began as a hobby with my daughters has grown into an obsession to share my love of the outdoors and seasonal container gardening with everyone I meet.

My team of talented designers serves commercial and residential clients four times a year. We create unique outdoor spaces to welcome customers and friends with custom curb appeal for any style or budget with the changing seasons throughout the community.

Seasonal planting tip: Water

The early days of summer in Chicago often come with cooler nights. Keep an eye on your soil to determine when your container garden needs water.

Don’t dump from above or the plants can become damaged and the flowers can break off. Allow it to flow through the container and then repeat.


Just be...
