“I can’t express how happy I am with the design and planting of our front yard. This was my first experience with a landscape “anything” and I was really intimidated about the entire process. But you listened and visited until you not only knew what I wanted but what I would be ultimately happy with. Your design is beautiful and so interesting that we now have the “Senior Busses” driving by to see our yard! Your choices in plants have lots of variation in color, texture, height and shapes. I loved it when you installed it in July but I think I love it even more now in JANUARY! I had no idea that what you designed for me would be even more beautiful during the coldest, darkest months of the year. I am so proud of my yard and love to have old friends come over to see your artistry. My husband who just happens to be a realtor is very pleased with the street appeal factor and the added value that your work has given our property. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me my own little Eden at home. I can hardly wait to start on the back yard.”

and Garden Show.

Award winning designer Jill Nunemaker received her ATA in Landscape Design from Edmonds Community College. Her career in landscape design evolved as a natural progression, combining her years as a fine artist with her love of gardening. She has been a designer for display gardens at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show for three consecutive years. In 2010 her garden, “No Place Like Home” won the Bronze Medal, in 2011 “Alice in Wonderland” won the Bronze Medal, and in 2012 “Pictures at a Northwest Exhibition, Rhapsody in Green” won a Bronze Medal as well as the 425 Editor’s Choice Award and the Dahlia Award, for most creative and attainable garden.

Jill’s training and work experience in the field gives her a hands-on understanding of the many aspects of the business, from design and costing to installation and maintenance.

Jill Nunemaker is also an active member of her community. She has volunteered for many years in public schools with a primary focus on teaching art and gardening. She feels that volunteering is essential to understanding the needs of both the individual and the community at large.

Her background in fine arts, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, combined with her experience as a set designer and painter in theatre reinforces her ability to envision her designs in three dimensions and from different viewpoints. Her horticultural knowledge adds a fourth dimension of time and season.

Living in Europe for 3 years and traveling extensively has opened up Jill’s vision to the many possibilities of exciting design beyond the expected.
