Gardening with an ALTITUDE in  the Rocky Mountain Region 

My books are available at local bookstores and can ordered online at

Over the years of working as a professional horticulturist with Colorado State University and various landscape firms, I've observed hundreds of garden styles and techniques. 

The folks at Cool Springs Press approached me back in the 1980's and suggested that I write a book specific to gardening in Colorado. This led to many more opportunities to publish books that are specific to the unique climate of the Rocky Mountain Region. 

I invite you to take a look at these books and hopefully find them useful for your pursuits in gardening in the Rockies.
