Colleen loves helping DO-IT-YOURSELFERS figure out what to do with their yards.  (Even better than driving out to her favorite BBQ joint in Lexington, Texas. YES!! Believe it!!)

Since founding Red Wheelbarrow over a decade ago she’s helped transform hundreds of yards in Central Texas.

When she’s not helping clients with their outdoor spaces, she’s preparing for her gardening segment on Spectrum News in Austin and San Antonio.

As a top gardening educator, she is often asked to speak to audiences about native Texas planting.


She believes yards are extensions of homes, financially and emotionally. And she takes to heart her role in increasing the property’s value – and enhancing the client’s peace of mind.

She believes in creating lush, sustainable green spaces – safer for families, neighbors, pets and wildlife.
