Dee’s interest in horticulture and gardening in general began when he was a child as he helped with his grandparent’s vegetable garden. He gained a passion for plant material and types of plants that provided aesthetically pleasing landscape, yet hardy enough to weather the North Texas climate.
Most recently Dee worked for Redenta’s Garden at their retail locations based in the Mid-Cities of the DFW Metroplex. Dee ran their Colleyville and Arlington stores where he taught classes on vegetable gardening, composting, butterfly gardening, native plants and general needs for the gardening in North Texas. Additionally, Dee designed all Redenta’s landscape installation with their commercial and residential customers. He has a unique ability to listen to a customer’s wants and desires and turn an aesthetically pleasing area into more than the customer expected or had originally envisioned.
Dee enjoys sharing his knowledge and interacting with customers to assist them in achieve their gardening goals along with designing landscape projects from small and simple to large and complex. He has an extensive knowledge of hardscape, water features, drainage, irrigation and of course plants and the correct process to plant them.
His passion for art, architecture and the marriage of the built and natural environment drives his design thoughts and artistic style.
