Hi, my name is Wes Williams and I hope to be your plant connection and personal landscape gardener! On the credentials side of things I have a B.Sc. in Environmental Horticulture from Ohio State University and 30 years of experience in both the public and private sector. My areas of expertise include small tree and shrub pruning, plant health care, specialty garden maintenance and plant selection. I always encourage and support the use of native plants in the contemporary landscape but not exclusively. I rarely see the need to use any pesticides or herbicides. All power tools are quiet and eco-friendly. Weeding is done quickly and expertly by hand
! By the way, I believe weeds can be very interesting plants and quite useful sometimes.
I always work by the principle that the whole is greater than the sum of it's parts. When approaching a landscape I begin by becoming aware of how the interactions among humans, plants, animals and the environment impact the whole. This includes you of course. I am always mindful of how the simplest actions impact the whole for good or for ill.
My commitment to humane ethics means I will choose the most compassionate course of action as I garden in your landscape.
Connecting with plants and nature is proven to reduce mental stress and fatigue. It inspires us with beauty and surprise. I believe our garden landscapes can be one of the most effective prescriptions for our well being, our community and the earth. Let's connect.
