Fine Gardening for Berkeley and the greater Bay Area
Proper garden maintenance is essential—from elaborate and imaginative landscapes to simple yards, your garden will look its best and be enjoyed most when it is properly maintained, receiving proper irrigation, and full of plants that do well for your area.
I do not use pesticides and use herbicides only extremely sparingly--I like to garden naturally. If a plant is struggling or diseased, I assess why it is doing poorly: whether it has been planted in the right environment, if it is receiving proper watering, if it is a plant prone to the disease, if it needs iron or additional fertilization, or if it needs to be replaced. I use a low-impact or natural approach to deal with thrips, fuchsia mites, scale, rose diseases, and many other common plant challenges.
I prioritize training and retaining wonderful employees who are extremely skilled gardeners themselves, and who have worked with me for up to seven years. Through hiring me you are helping me provide a living wage for my employees as well.
