Creative Gardens is a small business providing garden design and implementation, knowledgeable shrub care and garden care (maintenance) and consultation. Creative Gardens works without motor-driven machines and with nature to develop low-maintenance garden areas that are a delight to the senses. Creative Gardens follows an organic philosophy in efforts to build and grow healthy gardens. My name is Lynn Covington and I am Creative Gardens' "gardener"!



Qualifications and Background:

My undergraduate degree is from the College of Agriculture and Forestry at West Virginia University where I took thirty credits in areas of horticulture and resource management.  My Masters Degree is from URI in Exercise Science, which includes nutrition and food science, giving me another view of the various food and herb crops that I grow.  My horticultural work experience begins in 1973 at area gardens in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania and locally at Case Farm on Poppasquash Point in Bristol, RI (1985) and the Robinson Estate in Wakefield, RI (1986-90).  I have been in business as Creative Gardens since 1990.
