My name is Liz Braithwaite. Here’s my personal website. I’ve spent the last fifteen years gaining an extensive education that includes

  • Master in Landscape Architecture
  • Master of Arts in Instructional Technology and Learning Science
  • Permaculture Design Certificate
  • Bachelor of Science in Ornamental Horticulture

If that isn’t enough for you, I’ve worked as a

  • Extension educator
  • Landscape designer
  • Community garden coordinator
  • Landscaper with public gardens
  • Mother of five
  • Avid, and somewhat reluctant, gardener

I started Responsive Gardens as a way to not only design residential landscapes, but develop other resources and tools that help everyone be successful with their yard and garden. There are a lot of ideas in my head, so keep checking back to see what new things are coming! And if you want a resource that you can’t find hit me up with the idea.

If you happen to want to know what I love to do with my free time, I love

  • Adventures
  • Nature
  • Gardening
  • Homemaking
  • Reading
  • Creativity
  • Living a life that brings me beauty and joy
  • Lists. Who doesn’t love a good bulleted list?
