About Judi

A life-changing event motivated me to re-evaluate my life. It was time to find meaning in my work and craft a balance that would free me to spend more time with my then 3-year old son. The outdoors always called to me. It was my place of healing, of safety and inspiration.

I found that being outside, touching the soil and plants, watching and feeling like a part of nature, gave me great solace and joy especially when times felt challenging and painful.

Since I knew that I wanted to make a positive difference in people’s lives, I was convinced from my experiences that landscaping was how I would tap into the meaning I was seeking in my life. After studying landscape design and installation, and then delving into the psychology of healing gardens, I was ready to turn my therapy and my passion for landscaping into a business.

What I discovered was the more I pursued this meaningful work, the more I healed. AND, the more I could see the joy I was bringing to others. I realized that there is a power in nature to shift our moods from dark to bright, from hopeless to hopeful, and from stress to relief. So, Moodscapes was born of that moment of realization. Now, Moodscapes focuses on beauty and health through good design and organic practice, but we take it one step further than that…
