Creating Wild Rose Landscape Design was not my intention when I decided to do my own planting of the “mud scape” surrounding my newly built home. Why would I think I could take on such a task? Because of my mom, Madeline. She has always been an inspiration. My brother and I were fortunate to have her guidance and encouragement to be creative and see the beauty in nature, and always help not harm our surroundings. My love of nature and art became my new career direction, again with Madeline’s encouragement. The creation of Wild Rose honors my mother but its growing success must be attributed to Laura and Patricia. Please meet them; I’m very fortunate to have both as part of Wild Rose.
