Teresa Watkins, garden author, landscape designer, horticulturist, and consultant, designed the landscape for the first certified "green home" in Florida in 2001. Watkins hosts the weekly syndicated radio program "Better Lawns and Gardens" on 24 Florida radio stations, iHeart, iTunes, and Amazon.

In the last 20 years, over 37,000 homeowners have attended Teresa’s landscaping talks and programs. Her garden talks range from the ABC’s of landscaping to theme landscapes of fairy gardens to xeriscaping.

Ms. Watkins’s humor grabs her audience’s attention with easily understood landscaping principles. She instills an appreciation for the environment — with her “gardening with soul” philosophy — while encouraging everyone that they can have a beautiful yet sustainable, low-maintenance yard.
