The Barefoot Gardener, owned and operated by Suzanne Ruggles, has been in operation for the past sixteen years. Our employees are knowledgeable and trustworthy, work year-round, and adhere to the highest quality standards. We love our work and truly consider it an art form and a science We are an award winning, 100% organic company. Our main focus and passion is using native plants for their eco-friendly characteristics: their ease of care, their cost effectiveness, their safety to the soil, air, and water, and most importantly, for their co-evolutionary relationships with native wildlife, insects, and songbirds. We have been in business since 1991, and we have been on The Neighborhood Network’s Organic Landscaper Listing for 19 years.
