Gardener in Scottsdale, Arizona

Hello! My name is Alexis and I would love to be your personal gardener! It is my passion to take care of plants. From ornamentals to edibles, I love them all! I am proficient in pruning, weeding, watering, fertilizing, pest control, planting, harvesting and more! Now, let me tell you a little bit about my journey as a gardener. I discovered my love for growing and taking care of plants back in February 2015. I took a class called Art of the Edible Landscape that sparked my passion and career as a gardener. I began cultivating my skills through internships, jobs, and volunteering. I started off by volunteering at a community garden where I was taught how to plant, harvest, compost, water, and work with a community. Next, I ventured to Canada where I spent a month on a small-scale organic farm. At Wild Apple Farm, I continued to hone my gardening skills working with herbs and flowers. After my month in Canada at Wild Apple Farm, I returned to the states where I took another gardening course. The following spring I began another internship, this time in Denver, Colorado at a non-for profit farm at an elementary school. I had an amazing eight-month internship with Sprout City Farms! I enjoyed my time, appreciative that I was given the chance to further fine-tune my gardening skills. My days at Sprout City Farms included weeding, harvesting, planting, mulching, pruning, and working with children or other volunteer groups. While I was interning at Sprout City Farms, I was also working as a gardener for Denver Commercial Property Services. As a gardener with DCPS, my crew and I would go to our assigned accounts and keep annuals and perennials looking happy and healthy! We fertilized, watered, deadheaded, weeded, pruned, did whatever we needed to do to keep the plants happy and healthy. By the end of my first season with DCPS I was promoted to crew leader. Now, my journey has brought me to Arizona and I would love to be your personal gardener! I am passionate about plants and would love to help your garden flourish and thrive!
