About Helena Wagner

As an accountant turned garden designer and coach, I reimagined my life by transforming a bleak landscape into a beautiful Garden of Eden. For the past 30 years, I have used gardening as my therapy and creative outlet during the stressful times in the corporate world. My passion for plants and desire to help home owners grow eventually led me to study Landscape Design and Horticulture at Clackamas Community College. I have also completed the Oregon State University Master Gardener Program.

When I established 4 Season Gardens, LLC, I had one goal in mind. I want to help you create a beautiful, unique, and functional outdoor space that you will enjoy for not just every season, but for a lifetime.
