Garden Designer & Horticultural Advisor
Call (352) 372-2107 for an appointment
For three decades, Jim Notestein has been helping people turn yards into gardens.
In addition to being a co-founder of the Southern Gardening website,
Jim Notestein is widely recognized for his pioneering involvement in organic gardening,
low-maintenance landscaping, xeriscaping, and landscaping with native plants.
Along with a bachelor's degree in architecture and a master's in urban planning from the University of Florida, he draws on a lifetime of creating gardens that are innovative, practical and beautiful. He also maintains his own nursery so he can provide the highest quality native and appropriate non-native plants for his garden design clients.
For the average homeowner and small business, a professional garden designer can probably meet their needs more fully and much more affordably than either a landscape architect or a landscape designer.
