About Maia

Maia is a proud graduate of Iowa State’s Horticulture program, where she was trained both in the classroom and in the lab, and focused on landscape design.
She enjoys both designing and planting, and is a strong believer in practical, sustainable yard maintenance.

Maia considers herself a steward of our planet - she is a compost nerd, uses electric equipment and hand tools only, uses organic fertilizer, and focuses on native plants.


Maia worked diligently for 7 hours cleaning up messy gardens, weeding, dividing day lilies, eliminating rampant perennials and wow....what a difference.
— Gail, Clifton Park



Above all, the Green Gardener is client-centered. Maia believes that all people should enjoy nature and landscaping in a way that suits their budget, preferences, and green space.
