Meet your Designer
Hi! I’m Sharon. I’ve been designing and planting commercial and residential container gardens on the north side of Chicago since 2007. What began as a hobby with my daughters and friends has grown into an obsession to share my love of the outdoors and seasonal container gardening with everyone I meet.
Commercial clients incorporate container gardens into the patio spaces of their restaurants and stores to welcome customers and create a unique, dining or shopping experience for their patrons. Residential clients find container gardening to be an amazing way to connect with local plants, the changing seasons, and like-minded creative people of all ages in the community.
I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned over the years, spread my love of gardening, and meet more hibernating gardeners that are just waiting to blossom.
Commerical and Residential Pricing Options Available
Design and delivery starts at $50 for up to three containers in a common space plus the price of plants. Your designer will work with you to come up with the perfect combination for your space and your wallet.
Seasonal planting tip: Water
The early days of summer in Chicago often come with cooler nights. Keep an eye on your soil to determine when your container garden needs water. By the end of the summer, you’ll likely water every day. When the top two inches of soil are dry, gently pour water into the soil. Don’t dump from above or the plants can become damaged and the flowers can break off. Allow it to flow through the container and then repeat.
In the past, I’ve always struggled with which plants to buy for my space. Semi Green Thumb took all the stress away and let me focus on what I love doing most…planting and enjoying my garden.
My first Semi Green Thumb delivery is coming this summer and I can’t wait.
I don’t have time to go to the garden store with my busy work and home schedule. Semi Green Thumb did the hard work for me and let me enjoy the fun planting stuff that I love doing with my family.
Semi Green Thumb gave me all the tools and resources I needed to make my roof top deck an outdoor urban oasis.
Semi Green Thumb provided everything I needed and the support if I had questions for my planting. I was so happy with the outcome.
Sharon was great to work with and very knowledgeable. She made excellent recommendations for my space, and I love the outcome.
I’ve always loved gardening but never knew what to buy. Sharon eliminated this second guessing and let me do what I love most…dig holes.

Container gardens need water even during the colder months. Mother Nature doesn’t always provide enough water and snow to keep soil from drying out so don’t forget to water once a week until the ground freezes. Your rooted plants and even your fresh cut greens will last significantly longer into spring if you keep them […]

It’s time to start thinking about bulbs. Many of the most popular flowers for spring are bulbs planting in the fall. We like to plant bulbs in natural looking clusters for continued color throughout spring. First, the grape hyacinths, crocuses, and snowdrops pop up, then, the daffodils, and last the tulips. Planting a variety of […]

The dog days of summer are quickly approaching and your container garden should be filling in and flourishing. In these really hot days, don’t forget to water.
