My Journey 


   I started gardening long before moving to Utah two decades ago (from Sweden). Little did I know about some of the challenges I would be faced with in my own garden.

About a decade ago, I started and ran a small landscaping company for few years.

I saw and experienced some of the major challenges that many homeowners were faced with in their landscaping. The number one problem was plant choice.

They either had to replace plants that were struggling due to climate related issues or the wrong plant that was planted in the wrong place. 

Meanwhile I enrolled in some horticulture classes, got certified as a Master Gardener and started volunteering in community gardens to have a better understanding of plants in harsh conditions.

As I continue my personal journey of education and training, I have discovered a passion within sustainable gardening practices. Climate changes are making gardeners all over the world like me, make needed adjustments.

   In gardening I firmly believe that the best way of learning is in fact, by doing!

   So I am here to help, inspire and guide you. So that you as a homeowner can feel empowered to take on your own garden and create your personal haven.

   Whether you are a beginner gardener, just moved in to a home with an "inherited garden" or a newcomer to the Rocky Mountains, I can help you to choose plants that will thrive. 

   Contact me today to set up an on-site meeting in your own garden and let me help you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars, by planting plants that can handle drought and other extreme conditions.

And to make sure you plant the right plant in the right place.

No job is too small - I charge by the hour

Maria is awesome to work with! She took the time to understand not only what we wanted to improve in our yard but also the amount of time we wanted to spend in maintaining our yard and what our budget was for the improvements. So important! She then made suggestions that took into account all of these considerations. She is so knowledgeable about what kinds of plants work in our climate and where they will do best. We have gotten so many compliments on how nice our yard looks since we had her come and help us! I highly recommend her!
