Get To Know Me

I’m not sure about you, but by the end of the day all I want to do is take a break. Wouldn’t it be nice to return to surroundings that relax your body and calm your soul? What better place to do so than in your own private garden oasis.

Throughout my life, I’ve worked to create these moments of peace in my own backyards, where I can sit and smell the roses.

If you’re interested in creating a quiet space of your own but lack the time, vision, or inspiration, I can help. After an initial consultation that will touch on your yard’s soil type, slope, sun/shade exposures, and your personal preferences, I will create a template to the scale of your yard. It can include shrubs, trees, flowers, different forms of hardscaping, and a list of garden decorations (bistro sets, etc.). I’ll also provide detailed instructions on how to maintain and care for your hideaway.

Local Garden Tour

I was honored to have my backyard on the Bordentown City garden tour in Spring 2022.

Guests were surprised to enter such a cozy and inviting space in a townhouse setting. 


I have visited many unique gardens across America, France, Spain, Portugal, and others.

These travels inspired me, and provided fresh design ideas I will integrate into your personal garden plan.

Gardening Quotes

Audrey Hepburn

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”

Hanna Rion (1874-1924; Popular Garden Writer)

“The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.”

Thomas Jefferson

“No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.”

Richard Sheridan (1751-1816)

“Won’t you come into my garden? I want my roses to see you.”


My bedroom window looks out over Nina’s garden and it starts my day off with a beautiful view! Nina has the ability to combine flowers to make beautiful spaces.
I am very pleased with the landscaping design that Nina put together for my yard. I’ve always wanted to create a pollinator garden, but didn’t know where to start and what plants would survive the hungry rabbits we have in our area. We had an initial call during which Nina asked a series of questions to fully understand my current landscaping design and what I would like the final design to look like. Nina then promptly put together a comprehensive, custom landscaping design including a set of visual plans, detailed instructions on transplanting existing plants and caring for new ones, and a handy ‘shopping list’ of suggested plants to purchase. I now feel like I have the tools I need to implement the landscaping plan I’ve always wanted but was unable to develop on my own. I would highly recommend Nina and her services!
We were at a loss as to what to do with the area in front of our garage. So when Nina offered to help, I was happy to accept. She has a great eye and had some wonderful ideas for this outdoor space. She suggested many trees, shrubs, and plants I had never even considered. I really loved the ideas she had for our flower bed. Although I am still in the process of buying and planting, I am very excited about how beautiful it is going to look throughout this summer season and for years to come.
