By Kristina Lawrence, Owner of Out On A Limb Landscape Services, Inc.
One of my earliest memories is of planting primroses with my mother in the front yard of our home on West 5th Street in Port Angeles. I was probably 6 years old.
I have forever loved the feel of my hands in the earth & the pulsing of life in the roots, leaves and flowers of the plants I’ve held.
Over the years I always had gardens and plants to tend. Vegetables & fruits to feed my family and flowers & shrubs to feed my soul. It never occurred to me to get a formal education in horticulture or botany. I just created and cared for gardens wherever I went and learned the lessons they had to teach. I lived close to the land, worked in the forest, walked on the beach, chopped wood and carried water.
When I finally did go to college in my 40’s, I became a social worker. After a few years I realized I wasn’t suited to that occupation. I needed to get my hands dirty. So I became a recovering social worker; and of course the best place for my spirit to recover was in my garden.
Pretty soon friends were asking me to help them in their gardens and … one garden led to another. In 1999, while standing 25 feet in the air on the limb of a tall hemlock tree, I decided to start my own business. I would call it Out on a Limb Landscape Services .. because I figured anyone who owned their own business was out on a limb! In all years since I have not once regretted that decision.
