Julie comes from a long line of gardeners from whom her passion for gardening blossomed. What began as a hobby grew into a business as friends and neighbors in the Norcross area hired her to help them develop their gardens. Years of experience gave this self-taught gardener the knowledge and confidence that gardening in the hot humid South requires. As her business grew, Julie furthered her education by a becoming certified Gwinnett County Master Gardener and attending horticulture and landscape design classes through Gwinnett Tech. Julie has been co-owner of Gardens by Design for almost a decade. She can be contacted at www.gardens-bydesign.com.
