She is keen on incorporating native plants, creating wild life habitats, and minimizing water use in gardens. Cindy is also the computer-modeling expert in the office. She provides artistic 3D renderings that allow clients the experience of walking through rooms to visualize finished spaces. In her spare time, she enjoys remodeling her own homes and gardening.
