Welcome to my Website
A short description of what I do is at the bottom of this page under "What I Do"."The Navigation Menu" describes how to move around the website and some of the things you will find in it. There is much information about plants for Zone 6 in the Middle Atlantic area, especially growing plants in clay soil.
You'll find a newsletter too with appropriate articles for the Maryland area and other similar areas. The articles under the various headings such as "Design" are from previous newsletters.
Recently The Horticultural Society of Maryland published a shortened article written by me entitled "Upright Plants". If you would liked to read the entire article, please click Upright Plants.
The Navigation Menu . . .
To use the navigation menu, move your mouse over the menu. You'll see that the main menu has sub menus and some of the sub menus have sub menus. When you find a topic of interest, click on it and you'll be taken to that page.
"About Gardenesque" includes info about my business, pictures of my garden, pictures of some of my clients' gardens, and a disclaimer.
The "Newsletter" is no longer being updated due to my schedule. It has links to important articles about pests afflicting Maryland gardens.
"The Basics" includes design articles, planting and maintenance articles, and a glossary of gardening terms.
Plant information is under the menu heading "Plants for Clay Soil". The plant lists of new plants for each year are under the menu heading "New Plant Lists".
"Other Garden Things" has pages about wildlife (attracting birds and butterflies, etc.), technology (website links and articles about special websites such as Garden Gate), local and mail order nurseries, and my articles on gardens to visit in the area.
What I Do . . .
Gardenesque helps you visualize and develop your garden dreams by providing a two-hour consultation during which we discuss fresh approaches to designing your garden. The charge for "up to two-hour" onsite garden consultation is $150.00 payable at the time of the consultation. I am no longer providing detailed planting designs due to my busy schedule. Click here to go to my "Artists Attic" webpage that links to many pictures of my "Gardenesque Landscape Design Images" which includes digital renderings of clients' properties showing my design changes. They may be of interest to you and give you some design ideas.
The geographic area covered by Gardenesque is Harford County in the State of Maryland and nearby areas of Baltimore County and Cecil County. For more detailed information on what I do, click "About Gardenesque" in the Table of Contents.
