You are looking at our updated blog on our new website!

Why a New Website?

We wanted to integrate our three sites: our landscapes portfolio, our blog, and the HOD (Home Outside Design) online design website. We also wanted a new, updated look and the ability to post more images of our work. The portfolio section is greatly expanded, and we will continue to add to it.

The new navigation bar enables viewers to find their way smoothly around the site. Our landscape images, Julie’s books and DVD for sale, lecture descriptions, information on upcoming workshops, and more are easy to locate.

It’s also easier to find what you’re looking for on our new blog. Click on any of the Categories buttons to view blog posts on that topic, or use the Search field to search our entire site.

Our new HOD page lets you browse through an online brochure describing the HOD process and fill out a request for an estimate for your property. In the near future, the site will become fully interactive, allowing HOD customers to post images of their JMMDS landscape designs along with before, during, and after photographs.


We have a number of exciting HOD projects in the works, so be sure to check back for those photos! And please tell your friends about HOD—it’s the perfect landscaping solution for homeowners with a small (relatively level) property, a tight budget, or a “problem area” that needs a transformation.

We hope you enjoy our new site! Please share your comments with us, as we continue to tweak and improve it.

Our heartfelt thanks to Janet Friskey of Friskey Design for her beautiful designs on these pages, and to Catalyst Webworks for making this new site a reality.

    Thank you all for your good words! We are very happy with our new look. Once we’ve added a few more projects to our Portfolio pages and have uploaded a new video and a few more pages to our HOD site, it will all be complete (or as complete as any website ever is…)

    I want to credit Jana, Anna, and Jennifer from JMMDS for all their hard work on the design and details of the site, my friend and JMMDS graphic designer Janet Friskey of Friskey Design, and our web gurus, Cally and Jesse of Catalyst Webworks. A terrific team!
