  • Visualizing plant combinations over time
  • Attention to detail 
  • On site crew management and collaboration
  • Listening and communication to create a design unique and client experience 


  • Gardens by Monit, llc (2000 to present) I am endlessly inspired by new plant selections and combinations.  I love the renovation process, seasonal beauty, and seeing the new garden transform from my drawing into reality.  Photographing every stage of the garden process is a tool to learn from as well as memories of people and places that have enriched my life.
