Patti’s obsession with all things garden began on a family farm when she was a young girl. “My favorite childhood memories are visiting my grandparents who had a huge garden filled with vegetables, perennials and hydrangeas—lots of hydrangeas. We would sit on the back porch and snap crisp, fresh green beans, and cut armfuls of flowers to make tremendous bouquets. These summer days shaped me into who I am today.”

Patti is a wealth of information with a Plant Science Degree from Rutgers and over 20 years experience in the field of horticulture. Her landscape designs can be seen all over Monmouth and Ocean counties.
