The side yard was actually tired looking and ugly.
My neighbor across the street has a green thumb and beautiful yard. Of course she’d be a good person for a reference for a side yard makeover. She’d known Julie for a long time and highly recommended her. Julie came by after a day’s work in her work clothes including cute rubber boots and beautiful earrings. She was friendly, sassy, humble and impressively knowledgeable. We chatted for awhile and in no time she got a feel for what I might love in my new side yard. I was so impressed in how intuitive she was in suggesting what plants and designs I might like. She knew better than I did what would be perfect in my side yard. Then came the estimate! I’d never put much money in my yard and had lived here over 40 years. After gulping I agreed to go for it. Julie took me for a shopping excursion at Green Acres only allowing me in certain aisles that had plants adaptable for my yard and environmentally friendly. Julie, Mike and 2 of her workers were working in my yard long hours removing old soil and vegetation. Within no time I felt like I had the best bargain ever. My side yard exceeded anything in my wildest dreams. It is the most beautiful job I’ve ever seen! It has a variety of colorful & gorgeous plants, a winding path (my granddaughter says she wants to get married there), 4 stepping stones with my grandkids name on them. They took out ugly and put in amazing! Neighbors and other people constantly stop by to compliment my yard. I’m still totally in love with it. Last year year Julie came by to revitalize a few plants. This year I asked her to come to check on the plants’ progress.
Julie is the most creative person I ever met. She knows her trade, plants, and people to the core. If there was a president of the plant kingdom, I’d vote for JULIE!"
