When It Rains...

...The ground gets wet
...The plants get happy
...I get featured in the media

Tune in to HGTV this Sunday, 10/21, at 9:30 a.m. to see yours truly on my first episode of "Landscapers' Challenge". Did I pop the champagne corks in victory? Did I cry all the way home in defeat? You'll just have to tune in to see.

What I can tell you is, the yard recently (although too late for filming) was named an official Certified Wildlife Habitat™ by the National Wildlife Federation, because it nourishes and shelters birds, butterflies, and other desirable species. This is a neat program because it encourages designers and homeowners to think beyond just how a yard looks and consider what it does. So I can take comfort knowing that this yard will still be helping its environment long after my ephemeral fame has dried up like yesterday's rain.

John - Watching the show reminded me just how dilapidated our yard was. I wanted to thank you again for the truly wonderful job you did for us. Thanks to you, our yard is a joy and a privilege. Thanks.
Erin, Eric & baby Anya (now 13 months!)

I just watched this episode from my Tivo list and you did a fantastic job! As soon as I saw the three designs, I knew they had to choose yours. Great job!
