My name is Lynne Lucas, and I’ve been designing gardens professionally for 16 years. But really I’ve been designing them much longer; I was the primary yard tender and planter at my house growing up — even before I hit my teens – because I liked it so much!
I am a Master Gardener, have a certificate in landscape design, took continuing ed design classes with Dabney Peeples, and was on the steering committee of the Cullowhee Native Plant Conference in western North Carolina for 12 years.
I specialize in designing beautiful, low-maintenance landscapes that feature native plants, pollinators, and eco-friendly practices.
Native plants have grown in their area for hundreds of years, so they are accustomed to our soils and climate conditions, and are usually less fussy than non-natives. That asset alone can curb the use — and cost – of fertilizers, water, and time. And, most importantly, native plants co-evolved with the birds, butterflies, and insects that keep our amazing planet humming – so their use attracts those habitat partners and encourages healthy, sustainable eco-systems.
Whether your site is a few square feet in front of a condo, a large lot you inherited that is sapping your weekends of free time, or simply a yard you want to feel good to come home to, WildEarth Landscaping can help. I like to work with nature, not against her. And I’d like to work with you.
