Photography | When I’m not in the garden!
"Because of Mary Beth’s magical work in the garden, my garden is beautiful this year and i absolutely have vegetables, pretty flowers and no bindweed, She is a real worker bee and an expert in maintaining a healthy garden. Thank you Mary Beth"
Blanche McAndrew Harman
“For about ten years Mary Beth Jarrosak has worked on my flower gardens, shrubs and small trees. If you are looking for a gardener who gives full value she is the one for you. Over the years she has taught me the value of sustainable gardening and without the damaging fertilizers and pesticides on the market. I live in a harsh climate and with her careful and artful pruning, and fertilizing, all of my plantings are flourishing. She can do more in one hour of work than most others can in three. Add in her artistic ability to combine plants and you have a winning combination.
I recommend her without reservation.”
