10155960_824120644284550_7832034312547666286_nAmy, aka The Fraudulent Farmgirl and Lead Designer at Spotts Garden Service will entice us with all sorts of planting options for our lawns instead of traditional grass.

Amy graduated from DePauw University with a degree in physics, a lifelong love of theatre, and a problem-solving style that combines the approaches from both those fields. A Master Gardener and long-time communications professional, Amy also blogs and presents on gardening topics.

Amy designed her front-yard food garden to integrate permaculture principles with a traditional potager style. Her small urban garden serves as combination mini-farm and ongoing experiment.
