"Ellen helped me realize not only my
garden's potential, but my potential
as a gardener. I was always fearful
of how and where to group plants, if
I could move things around or how to
even get started. Ellen encouraged
my efforts, added artistic design and
made me believe this could all be
possible in my little garden (despite
the fact that I have two young children,
work full time and have a dog who
enjoys digging up what I plant)."
Andrea, Framingham MA
Ellen's "coaching has given us the
confidence to face the challenge of
shade gardening. We are learning how
rewarding it can be to play in dirt!"
Judy, Spencer MA
Ellen's passion and enthusiasm is
contagious and I can't wait for
spring to arrive so that we can get
started implementing the gorgeous
plan she created for us. She listened
carefully to my needs and concerns,
knowing I'm not an avid gardener and
then designed a garden that met those
needs utilizing low maintenance plants
that even I couldn't kill. When I
think of how much time and money I've
wasted in the past on plants that
weren't right for my garden, I only
wish I'd found Ellen sooner. Thank
you so much!!
Terri, Uxbridge MA

Janice and Michael, Berlin MA
"A few hours after (everything was
planted), mid afternoon yesterday, I
looked out my window and there was a
whole flock of chipping sparrows in the
trees and shrubs already! It was magical!
I was like, 'Ellen was right! the trees
are coaxing the birds out of the woods!'
I didn't expect it to happen so soon!
wow!!" Sophie, Berlin MA "We have had SO many compliments already.
I want to thank you again for your time
and help. It is so nice to finally feel
proud of our yard and to have color. Plus,
I look forward every day to taking care
of it. Some of the plants are already
changing and it is so much fun to watch
Oh--and we have already seen so many more
butterflies and our first hummingbird!
That has been fantastic!" Nicole, Groton MA "Thank you for the patience,
guidance and vision."
Judy, Spencer MA
"Your suggestions and encouragement
were just what we needed to get us
going again on the garden"

We cannot wait to start nature-beautifying our home...thank you so much for your expertise and your patience in teaching us and for all the beauty you are sharing with us." Pamela, Charlton MA
