Our Story

Lauren’s Garden Service is dedicated to creating beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. We take the hard work out of gardening by doing it for you!  In fact, the company was created to offer an environmentally friendly option for garden lovers who just didn’t have time to maintain their own gardens.

Lauren’s Garden Service embraces permaculture practices in all aspects of our gardening and landscaping including plant selection,  fertilizing and soil enhancement, planting and weeding techniques, as well as other installation and maintenance practices.

“I love learning about plants…I just feel blessed that I can nurture my love and knowledge of plants everyday in many ways to create peaceful spaces, to attract wildlife and beneficial insects as well as to grow edible plants or plants that can be used for medicinal purposes.” –Lauren

One of the things Lauren loves about her work is the satisfaction of putting hard work into improving someone’s garden.  She has continued her education to ensure that she is knowledgeable and up to date on all aspects of her field.  One of the areas that she is passionate about is environmental sustainability.  It’s not only a part of her gardening practices, it’s a part of her life.

“We grow organic fruits and vegetables, raise organic, free range chickens for eggs and meat, buy locally, compost, recycle, use cloth diapers with our babies, save electricity and water and use them consciously.  We also buy from thrift stores, consignment stores, or Craigslist instead of new.” –Lauren
