Sara Preston, BFA MALD can help you transform the environment around your home into a sanctuary.  Improve the sustainability of your landscape, make it easier to maintain, and maximize the health and beauty of your garden.

There is a beauty in a functioning system and an ease that can come with working with natural processes. Gardening at its roots is an act of influencing nature. Changing the natural systems to meet our aesthetic, or resource needs. With a rising recognition for the impotence of our environment and its complex natural systems people have become more attentive to protecting the environment and utilizing more sustainable practices. By integrating sustainable systems in our homes and gardens we can support our desire for more harmony with nature, and reduce expenses and waste, resulting a life that is easier to sustain.
