She married and moved to Armonk, NY in 1999, where she resides with her husband and 2 daughters. She initially learned about plants and garden design while experimenting on her one-acre property. She takes advantage of the cost effectiveness by using perennials to add seasonal blooms and interest throughout the year. In choosing plant materials, she learned to take into consideration the site's soil, sun location, and climate. The hands-on experience and knowledge she gained has proven to be invaluable when working with clients. Angela's mission is to create beautiful, low maintenance environmentally sustainable gardens, regardless of budget.
