We found Donna on MeetAGardener.com when we were looking for someone to take care of our plants and fruit trees. We wanted someone who would really care about our plants and make them look beautiful and healthy. A lot of gardeners just want to get in and out quickly with doing minimal effort. Donna puts so much care and love into gardening and it is so apparent in the work that she does. She has a great knowledge of plants and if she doesn’t know something she is very eager to research and learn so she can look after your garden the best she can. She gave us clear suggestions on the things we should do now and seasonally in the future for each plant, and options to be as hands on or off in our garden as we would like. She looks after our garden as is if it is her own. We are so happy we found someone to care for our plants, and will definitely recommend Donna to anyone in the future.

It's a true pleasure for me to highly recommend Donna P as a personal gardener. Donna has been lovingly caring for my property and it's many plants, trees and shrubs for over 15 years now and I could not be more pleased with how my garden looks. I've lost count on how many neighbors, friends and total strangers who walk by my house and comment on how lovely and lush everything looks. All credit goes to Donna P and her amazing gardening talent. She is absolutely gifted with her ability to take a sad plant that most people would toss aside and bring it back to glorious life. Donna is also affectionately know as the "Orchid Whisperer" for her incredible talent of bringing "dead" orchards back to bloom beautifully and consistently. I could not be more pleased with Donna P and the excellent job she has done with my garden and I highly recommend her services for all your garden needs. 5 Stars *****

Donna is a gem, not only for her knowledge and gardening acumen, but as a professional and ethical individual. She always goes the extra mile- a seeming whirlwind of energy deftly combining the art of gardening with the science. I recommend her without reservation.

I have a fairly large yard, with a large slope finishing off the back yard. There is also a terraced hill as part of the front yard. This yard needs lots of various plants, shrubs, trees, etc. I have a 'mow and blow' service, which is excellent and reliable for that. However, they do not really know plants. I had been looking for someone who really knew plants to take over the feeding, trimming, checking for disease, and overall health and well-being of these plants, and adding more as needed. I have tried several 'landscape' and garden 'experts' and have never been happy with any of them. But, Donna P is the person I found midway through the summer. She knows plants, and she knows how to trim, prune, cut back as needed. She also has sprayed, fed and added plants as needed. My yard is beginning to thrive with her care. I highly recommend her to 'take over' the care your plants' needs. I am a person who loves a beautiful garden, but I am not particularly interested in gardening myself. Donna is; she is happy just being out and helping them to become beautiful and thriving. I can't imagine a better person to help you make your garden the best that it can be.

“This woman is a miracle worker❣️Just 3 months ago I was saying farewell and grieving my beloved hibiscus plants after fighting pestilence all year. Thanks to months of her persistence and wisdom, they came back in full health, and I even ventured to have her plant new ones for me on the other side of the house!” #greentherapysd #lovemyhibiscus #nevergiveup #abeautiful sight

Donna is a resourceful, knowledgeable and hardworking gardener. She has been very helpful to me in trimming, cleaning up, re-potting and spraying for fungus hundreds of my bromeliad plants. Donna is an energetic, physically strong and self motivated horticulturist who is happy to work tirelessly on a project until it is finished. I highly recommend Donna for your horticultural projects.
