Renee Marsh
Renée Marsh is a garden designer, an advanced master gardener and a horticulturist (aka a plant nut). She believes our gardens should be a healthy ecosystem where people, plants, animals and insects are in balance. Doing it right means less chemicals, less maintenance and more enjoyment.

She is the owner of a gardening design business, A Simpler Place. For a number of years she was also co-owner of a horticulture and cut flower business, Hilltop Blooms. For five years she was the Head Gardener for the Town of Monroe where she designed and managed gardens at the parks and town buildings. She teaches gardening classes for the New York Botanical Garden and speaks to many community groups including garden clubs and writes on gardening topics for local publications. In her spare time she works on her 1803 homestead in Shelton, Connecticut.
