Jane: Researcher

Hi there, I’m Jane, one of the researchers here at My Backyard Project.

I’ve been passionate about gardening and backyard projects for as long as I can remember. My childhood was spent exploring the outdoors, planting seeds and watching them grow, and building all sorts of fun projects with my family.

As an adult, I’ve continued to pursue my love of gardening and outdoor living.


I’ve worked as a horticulturist, landscape designer, and garden coach, helping people create beautiful and functional outdoor spaces.

At My Backyard Project, I’m excited to share my knowledge and experience with you. Whether you’re looking to start a vegetable garden, build a raised bed, or create a relaxing outdoor oasis, I’m here to help.

I believe in taking a holistic approach to backyard projects, considering factors like soil health, water conservation, and biodiversity. I’m also committed to using sustainable and eco-friendly practices whenever possible.

When I’m not researching and writing about backyard projects, you can usually find me in my own garden, experimenting with new techniques and plants. I’m also an avid hiker and camper, and love exploring the natural beauty of the world around me.
