About Healthy Home Habitats
Affordable, Environmentally-Friendly Landscape Designs
You need a better landscape. We need a healthier world.
I show you how to do both at your home.
I do this without a fancy plan, without a fancy designer, from your ideas, on your schedule, with your budget. We create a strategy with resources. I can come to your house with tools to help you figure out which plant is a weed, plant your plants, answer questions, discuss what makes you crazy and what brings you joy at your home, building your knowledge, creating your perfect habitat.
We can also show you other DIY ways to save money at home. Save money on water. Save money on heat. Save money on electricity. And best of all, your savings help collectively heal our world.
Landscape Designs that look great and improve our environment
I create environmentally sensitive landscape designs for spaces that can contain raised, vegetable planters, and/or pollinator patches for healthier and beautiful native plants. You’ll love to care for spaces which require less water, less mowing of grass, no chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, and perennials that return each year. These gardens support your family with food and your surrounding community with a variety of native and non-native flowers, shrubs, trees, vines and bulbs.
Projects to Enhance Our Community’s Health
I create projects that improve our community’s health. “Easy-Peasy Vining Vegetables” is a beginner’s and/or family, garden project that gives anyone an easy way to grow vegetables at home. All that’s needed is soil along a fence (or in a pot), sunshine (6-8 hours of full sun), a vertical element (such as a fence, trellis or suspended strings), and water (from a hose or a bucket), the simple steps to grow vegetables right at home! We start the growing season with organic, Sugar Snap Pea Pods, then as the season progresses, organic Runner Beans, organic Cucumbers and lastly, organic Pumpkins. A person or family can grow just one or all four! Each of these vegetables are direct sown and produce abundant, fun crops with a weekly attention. HHH has posted free, “Step-By-Step”, 3-5 minute, YouTube videos showing our neighborhood’s children taking each step to grow the seeds into fabulous, tall, vines. These vines produce flowers that create beautiful, yummy, pea pods, cucumbers, string beans or pumpkins for fun, healthy eating right at home.
