Meet Terry

Owner, ValleyScape Consulting

Having been an owner/retail manager of Fort Valley Nursery (now Woodstock Gardens) for the past 40 years, I've had the pleasure to meet and work with a lot of gardeners. What I found most rewarding was building those relationships and helping to solve garden issues/problems for homeowners throughout the valley.

  • Fertilization/nutrient issues

  • Degree in Entomology from Purdue University

Terry is a fount of knowledge on how to make a garden flourish. He’s given us invaluable advice on a wide range of topics, including invasive plants and insects, plant diseases, pruning techniques and optimum fertilization schedules. He is an exceptionally gifted teacher — and equally important, he makes the process of learning fun! I would highly recommend him to anyone who aspires to be a successful gardener.

With extensive experience and credentials in horticulture, Terry is heaven sent! After we invested in trees, shrubs, and flowers around our home in WV, Terry helped us create a plan for winterizing, pruning, feeding, and protecting our plants and beds. He is an absolute joy to work with!! I have a notebook full of his wisdom and a new level of excitement about our home.
