Hi everyone! I’m glad you found your way to my gardening blog. I’m Lucy M. Clark. I started gardening sometime in the early 2006. Back then, I was a total gardening neophyte. I was living in Florida, I had my own little yard, and I knew that I wanted to have a lush and beautiful garden.
Sadly, I had no idea what I was doing. Without any skills or prior experience with gardening at all , I really struggled. My yard was in poor shape and a lot of my plants didn’t make it. However, I didn’t give up. I knew that I wanted to have my own garden and with enough patience and dedication, I could develop my own green thumb and have my dream garden!
And that’s exactly what I did!
When I started my gardening journey, it wasn’t easy. There weren’t that many gardening blogs available, and I had to personally visit and ask successful gardeners about their stories in person. I also visited different places personally to find out about the best products to use and their different pros and cons.
So, to fellow budding gardening enthusiasts out there, I can very much relate to your struggle. I want to help you. If you too are a gardening enthusiast, and you have no such things called green thumb but want to be able to have your own beautiful garden anyway, this is the place for you. I will be posting about my personal experiences and the small yet useful knowledge that I was able to gain throughout the years here.
If you would like to ask me about gardening-related things that are not yet covered in my blog, feel free to do so. I will try my best to help you and maybe even dedicate a blog post about it. After all, helping people pursue their gardening dream, sharing what I know and accompanying them on their journeys were the very reasons I started this. Dedication and passion for the hobby is what made Garden Ambition possible
I wish you the all the best on your garden journey!

Elise Webb – Junior Editor
Growing up, my parents always had a vegetable garden and my mother was especially proud of her rose bushes. We fed our family with that garden and sat on the porch on summer evenings admiring my mother’s roses. My childhood experiences really taught me the joy of gardening and how rewarding it can be to grow something from a seed or a root.
I always knew I wanted to make the written word my career by being a writer, editor, or both. When I graduated from college with a degree in creative writing and business administration, my dream job at that time was to work for publications that provided content to homeowners, whether for DIY-ers or gardeners.
After working for several years at various lifestyle publications as a writer and editor, I finally landed at my true dream job here at Garden Ambition. Being able to combine my love of the written word and my love of gardening is about as rewarding as a job could possibly be.
When I’m not working, I’m busy with my own family, and I’m teaching my children the joy of gardening.
Corina Campos – Horticultural Expert
After obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Horticulture with a Horticultural Business Management Concentration, I went to work for the arboretum in a large city. While I started at the bottom of the ladder, this job laid the foundation for a broad overview of all things to do with ornamental plants. Since it was a nonprofit organization that was funded by the city, I had a huge budget for making beautiful gardens for the public to enjoy.
Later, I was hired as a manager for a commercial garden center, and this really helped me to hone my business management skills. It was very rewarding to help people of all skill levels plan their gardens and make their outdoor living areas beautiful.
Being able to write about horticulture and gardening at Garden Ambition is a great way for me to share my knowledge and skills with people. I hope you find our content helpful, and that we can help you make your outdoor living as enjoyable as possible.
