Are you putting together a speaking program and need a spunky Southern accent? I'm your girl! 

Does your garden club need some new training? Does your realty group want to understand how to leverage the power of landscaping for selling homes? Does your corporation bring in speakers for lunch-and-learns? 

I LOVE education, and teaching is one of my favorite things to do. As a designer, my job is equal parts innovator, communicator and educator- I want my clients to feel confident about their landscapes. I'm a trained speaker, and can't wait to work with your group to elevate understanding about landscaping and landscape design. 

education is crucial-
luckily I love to talk!

teaching and backing it up

I have attended workshops, had full semester courses, and read countless books on gardening, but the two hours Tina gave us in class as a speaker were invaluable to me. She has a wonderful way of stating the basics and then backing up the premises with excellent examples from her own landscaping.       - Diana, Des Moines

So many people are interested in outdoor spaces, and rightly so: working in the earth is restorative for body and soul. Also, since excellent landscaping raises property values, we all have a lot to gain by
learning more.   

Ever wonder why your trees didn't make it, or how to design a walkway, or what plants to put in that garden? I give informative talks on design fundamentals, specific problem areas, planting and horticulture, and people leave inspired and excited about their landscape.
