What prompted you to open your business in Craig?I thought the consumers were being overcharged for their gardening needs, and I thought I could offer something better.
How did you get into your line of business?
I took a class at CNCC called Introduction to College. From that class, I learned to find something you love to do. I love art, designing, gardening and building things. So landscaping design works for me.
What is your philosophy of being a good businesswoman? Listening to the customer, having an open mind and doing what the customer wants.
How do you define the role of your business in the community? I offer one-on-one help and bring innovative ideas to the table.
What's the best part of your job? Gabbing, talking and meeting with people as well as the designing.
What's the most challenging part of your job? The pricing. Trying to keep landscaping affordable and still make a living is hard.
