It is my personal pleasure to write this letter highlighting my ten year association with Marian Volkman and her company Mother Earth Gardens and Design Inc.

 As a Master Gardener, Marian was able to envision and execute the design and ongoing maintenance of the gardens for my 3 acre property. Her extensive knowledge of gardening and creative melding of annuals, perennials, specimen plants and water features truly brought my garden to life.  I recently purchased another property and have contracted Marian to oversee the development of the gardens and design elements.

Marian is a passionate, knowledgeable, dedicated professional. She is

hardworking, honest, collaborative and someone whom I highly recommend.

  I have been a client of Mother Earth Gardens and Design for several years. Owner Marian Volkman is one of the most  knowledgeable and creative gardeners I have ever met. My large garden has benefited from her designs and from the meticulous care she uses in helping me maintain it. Mother Earth's services are reliable and fairly priced. I give this  company my highest recommendation.

We maintain this garden bed at Wynnes residence. It has colour and interest throughout the seasons. This is made possible through a combination of rhododendrons, versatile textures of the purple smoke bush and the eye catching, golden catalpa trees. The red pinwheel windmill adds movement while the evergreen osmanthus shrubs adds structure and a lovely scent to the garden in early spring.
