In 1992, I moved to the Long Beach Peninsula from Seattle and by 1993 my gardening business had begun. By word of mouth, I soon filled a work schedule that has become ever more interesting and challenging. My original partner, the talented Robert Sullivan, left the business in 2003, and in 2005 I was joined by Allan Fritz, whom I had known since high school in 1972. Together, we care for gardens both public and private all over the Long Beach Peninsula. You can see regularly updated photo albums of most of our gardens on our Facebook page.
In 2010, we left our shady Spring Street garden and tiny cottage, hidden away behind the Ilwaco boatyard, and moved to a large sunny lot in the heart of Ilwaco where we have done our best to make a 1979 manufactured home look like a cottage!
Some of the gardens we care for on the Peninsula have been on the Music in the Gardens tour, including our Spring Street garden in 2008, my mother’s garden in 2009, our new garden in 2012, and gardens of clients past and present: Jo’s garden, Klipsan Beach Cottages, The Shelburne Inn, Laurie’s garden, Discovery Heights, and The Boreas Inn.
