I specialize in helping homeowners, realtors and rental owners increase the value and beauty of their home, rental property or Air B&B by creating beautiful outdoor and indoor living spaces without having to take out a second mortgage to achieve the transformation. My ultimate goal is to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the end result of your project and equally excited that it did not cost you an arm and a leg to get it. I love the "Oh Wow!" factor that I receive from my customers when they show up in the afternoon after I've worked on their property all day. They cannot believe what I've accomplished in such a short period of time and the difference it makes in the overall appearance of their property or home.
Whether it is just a simple project, like creating a pretty mailbox area makeover, edging the garden borders and laying some fresh mulch, or adding some boulders or decorative rock, no job is too small to be considered. Even the not-so-enjoyable, tedious task of weeding I can take off your hands. Weeds can sabotage even the prettiest of gardens quickly!
Adding some bushes and perennials, some fresh mulch and boulders can transform the look of any house in a day.
Perfect for Realtors and Rental Owners! Why not have your potential buyers/renters love coming home to their new place of residence rather than it looking mediocre!
Weeds! Those annoying things that grow as if someone is injecting steriods into the ground. Weeds make every yard look terrible. You can hire me to come by on a regular schedule to maintain an optimal appearance.
Simple Fire Pits contructed from retaining wall blocks that are sooooo affordable and won't rust within a year like those other metal options. Great for relaxing and entertaining family and friends
I take outdoor furniture, patios or fences and make them look brand new again.
Wouldn't you rather be at the beach or hiking in the park instead of spending your free weekend cleaning your outside furniture, patio or fence? Let me revitalize the things that have become dingy.
I take an ordinary room and transform it into something unique and stunning by accenting a focal wall with sponge painting. Sponge painting is a lost art, but I absolutely love it. I have sponge painted two rooms in my own house (as well as for other customers) and I always receive beautiful comments from folks who see it.
I have been a professional seamstress for decades. Need clothing alterations? Custom curtains or seat cushions? For those motorcycle riders.....patches sewn onto your leather jacket? Need repairs/replacement on your worn-out marine cushions? Any tractor-trailer drivers out there? I can fabricate custom insulated black-out pads for your cab to give you privacy and climate control.
I love making one-of-a-kind art projects for people. Whether it is pen & ink calligraphy, wood-burning, acrylic paints, or abstract seashell creations, each piece is hand-crafted in love with a sense of passion behind it. Please check out the WOOD-BURNING / CALLIGRAPHY / SHELL ART PHOTO GALLERY to see samples of my work.
QUITE THE UGLY BACKYARD!
I can say that because it's MY house and this is what it looked like when I first purchased it. There wasn't a bush or flower on the property, the fence was falling down and the weeds were out of control! Check out the following transformation photos . . . .
IT DEFINITELY NEEDED TO BE
ENJOY RELAXING OUTSIDE!
Amazing what a new fence, basic brick patio surrounded by vinca flowers, a gazebo with patio furniture, and a slew of perennials can do to enhance my enjoyment of sitting outside in my backyard now.
I fabricated a simple waterfall in my own backyard. The local birds think they are vacationing at "Club Med" and enjoy taking their afternoon dip in the pool of cool water! LOL
I LOVE MY FIREPIT!
Firepits are an inexpensive way to relax with friends and family and melt stress away with the warmth of the fire upon your body. Break open a bag of marshmellows, graham crackers and chocolate, and make some S'Mores to delight kids and adults of all ages.
Adding Pea Gravel makes it even more fire safe, in addition to keeping weeds under control.
Also a great way to dispose of
This simple brick and rock combo water feature adds charm to any landscaping layout. The lily flowers flourish in the waters edge. A solar powered mini fountain can be installed for additional effects if desired.
THE BEAUTY OF PERENNIALS!
Perennials are my passion! I am awestruck by the handiwork of God and the brilliant colors, shapes, sizes and variety of the multitude of perennials available to make each garden uniquely your own! Add some perennials, mulch, boulders and decorative river rock and your "non-existent" or "boring garden" will come to life with such color and beauty.
FRESH VEGGIES ANYONE?
There's nothing like going out in your yard & picking a ripe tomato off the vine or veggies for a stirfry. Perhaps you'd like a wood-bordered garden but need a little help getting it prepared.
I can do it for you!
GARDENING...THE PERFECT THERAPY FOR THE ELDERLY! When my 80 yr old dad lived with me, I planted a garden for him to tend. He was out every day watering the plants,
