My name is Bonnie Bohnson. I graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in horticulture (some years ago). I traveled abroad off and on for a few years and then returned to work on the grounds of some large local apartment buildings. I joined a retail garden center/greenhouse in Madison and continued to work there for 9 years in all aspects of the retail business, including annuals, houseplants, hard goods, and then managed and expanded the perennial plant department. I left there in order to explore a more creative career, as I've always enjoyed various forms of art, design, and color. I started Fertile Earth in 1995. Since then I have really appreciated working closely with my clients, using their ideas and my knowledge to create a landscape they can enjoy. It has been many years of hard work, but work that I love and can't imagine my life without. I'd like to continue expanding my business by making connections with other high-quality landscapers in the area and incorporating their skills and ideas with mine to provide a more complete service to my clients.

In my "free" time (only December through February), I enjoy working in my home repainting (and repainting), rearranging, and updating, and am often actually awake enough at night to finish the day with some enjoyable reading. Weather permitting, we love to travel with our son and learn new things through his eyes! I am still able to volunteer at his school without embarrassing him too much. Occasionally, in the summer, I get to go along on some of the family camping excursions. At those events, I can sneak in some plant education for the family and learn new material myself.
