I have been helping homeowners in Bloomington/Normal, McLean County and central Illinois with their landscaping since 1995.  Upon graduating from Illinois State University I began working for a local garden center/landscaping company where I became the head designer and oversaw the landscaping department, staff and installations.  In the 20 years of working in the landscape industry I have 18 years of professional experience caring for trees, shrubs and plants; 17 years designing home outdoor spaces and 13 years guiding/directing staff.  In 2011 I earned the title of Certified Arborist from the International Society of Arborculture and in the spring of 2012 I founded Dorch Landscapes.
