I am from College Park, Georgia and I grew up on White City Road. I am a proud mother of two sons and one grandson. I am a Christian. I have worked for Georgia State University for 25 years (started when I was 22 years old), but I had developed a passion for landscaping when I was just a little girl. I grew up watching my mother and father work together doing things around the house and yard (building a porch, installing a fireplace, remodeling the kitchen, adding a room here and there, etc.)
My father and mother had 13 children together (I’m the youngest) and they taught each of us many of their skills. I would watch my mother for hours tending to her gardens (vegetable, ornamental flowers, and fruit trees). It wasn’t long before I started to help her and learn from her. She taught me A LOT about gardening. When I purchased my home, it was no surprise that I began gardening and taking care of my yard.
I started my business in 2018, but I have been creating yard designs and planting flowers since 2006. After I had started receiving so many compliments on my yard (the design, the color, etc,) I began posting my work on social media. A couple of my friends and my sister Debbie suggested that I should start my own business. So I said why not?? Pretty soon my two brothers, my oldest son and nephew joined me in making bigger yard projects come to life! Honestly, I was nervous about starting my own business, but through my pastor (Apostle Eddrick High, New Creation Christian Church in Riverdale, GA) God reassured me that starting my business was a part of his plans for me (Jeremiah 29:11).
