After 27 years of public service and, nine years after the establishment of Fairie Herb Gardens, I began working full time within the gardens (1994). During 1994 the pond garden was installed. That project proved instrumental in the development of my garden design career.
Our garden consultation service quickly became an integral part of the business. Within that framework I began to discover that I had an eye for design. In 1997 I realized I was following my bliss (in the words of Joseph Campbell).
