About Us

Gardening is such a peaceful activity that anyone can partake in - whether that be growing vegetables, lawn maintenance, or trimming hedges. If you’re looking for a new hobby to take up, I highly recommend gardening. 

Hi, my name is Angie Strousse and I am a gardening enthusiast. Ever since I was a young girl, my favorite time of year was when I was able to get out in the yard and watch my dad begin his yearly gardening. 

Growing up, we had a massive yard full of trees, shrubs, and plants. We would all bundle in the car and head down to the gardening center, where my brothers and I were able to pick one pack of seeds each to grow that year. 

We would then come home, plant our seeds, and impatiently wait for them to sprout. My brothers would often turn it into a competition to see who’s plant would grow the quickest.

As I grew older, my brothers began to lose interest in gardening and my dad found it harder to keep up. So, I stepped in as the primary gardener. Even now that I’ve moved out, I’ll still come back every day in the growing season to maintain his garden and keep it looking pristine. 

Gardening is a form of self care for me, and it helps me to clear my head in any circumstance. If you’re thinking about taking up gardening, I couldn’t recommend it enough. Just five minutes could leave you feeling refreshed and more at ease!

That is why I created this website, so that I can teach and encourage more people into the world of gardening. I’ll answer anything you need to know to help you grow the most magnificent garden that you’ve ever seen!
