Making the best plant selections for your landscape is the focus for James Dillon, a certified Horticulturist with over 16 years of experience working in the green industry. With a B.Sc. in Biology from East Carolina University, he views landscape design as the integration science, nature and art. An ecological approach and knowledge of many plant varieties result in plantings that thrive in their environment. James practiced horticulture in the northern DE area, most notably at the Delaware Center for Horticulture, with continuing education at Longwood Gardens. Previously, as manager and buyer of woody plants for a diversified garden center in Chambersburg, PA, James became familiar with a large palette of plant cultivars. Native plant selection, environmental benefits, and low maintenance gardens are emphasized in many designs. James has designed several rain gardens and continues taking coursework on ecological landscape design. James enjoys volunteering for The Monarch Alliance, designing Monarch waystations for them, including the Kiwanis Park in Hagerstown. He owns and operates Native Havens LLC, a small landscape/gardening company based out of his home, where he’s an avid gardener in Kearneysville, WV.
