Owner/operator Maria Wind received her formal horticultural training at the New York Botanical Garden's Sustainable Garden Design certificate program, and has over 20 years of gardening experience in New York and New Jersey. Maria believes in honesty, integrity and precision in her work, and holds her standards high. She has vowed to help our environment prosper by promoting sound and safe garden practices.
Maria's love of nature goes back to her childhood when, growing up in an apartment with no yard access, she and her family sought out the large green space of nearby Astoria Park, where she would play. Maria did not connect this early love of nature to a possible career choice until many years ago, when seeking out a new path in life. "I decided to formalize and fine tune my passion for gardening and start a horticulture/ gardening business. What better place to further my education than NYBG in the Bronx? The quality of instruction was first rate and many of my instructors have remained in contact with me over the years. By implementing the organic practices taught, I provide beautiful designs and installations that are pesticide- free, healthy for young children and pets to walk and play around, are low maintenance and tranquil. I've always loved the outdoors and working with my hands, so this business has fulfilled my yearning for better balance and serenity in my life." Maria has coupled this transformative experience with exceptional service, working one- on- one with her clients, overseeing all installations and providing maintenance either herself or with one or 2 trained assistants as necessary.
