Meet My Summer Intern
I am excited to have an intern this summer! Her name is Chesney Babbitt and she is currently a student at Yavapai College in Prescott, Arizona studying Horticulture and Landscape Design. Chesney has worked in various nurseries, both in Arizona and Colorado, and loves to learn anything about plants that she can. Chesney's love of plants was first cultivated by helping her mom plant flowers when she was little; now she has an abundance of house plants in her apartment and grows vegetables in containers on the patio. She is fascinated by the complexity of each cell in a plant and how each plant grows so differently. Chesney has always had a passion for plants and art, and hopes that a career in Landscape Design will be a good blend of these two passions.
In this photo, Chesney is enjoying our Colorado scenery. She is originally from a little town called Pinetop on the edge of the White Forest in Arizona at an elevation of nearly 7,000 feet. Chesney just laughs when people comment that she must be used to the heat of summer since she's from Arizona. Actually, it's much cooler in Pinetop than it is here, especially this last week!
Chesney started working with me in the middle of the spring planting rush and will continue until August when she returns to school. I am enjoying working with her; she's been invaluable help to me and I appreciate her creative input.
It's not too late for Spring Planting Service
Sometimes people feel like they missed the proper planting time and decide it's not worth bothering because they're late. When container gardens are well cared for, they will easily last through the end of September. Why pass up on having a beautiful patio for the rest of the summer just because you are running a little bit late? If you still need plants, please contact me
I continue to offer Landscape Design Services specifically for the do-it-yourself homeowner. Save money by doing the work yourself and enjoy that sense of accomplishment that comes from a job well done. Whether you have a new house and need to plan the entire yard or would just like to fix up a trouble spot, contact me
