Jodie Chiffey spends a lot of time helping people figure out how to get the perfect yard. With so many variants from climate, soil type, to the amount of rainfall, she researches and helps Turf and Till readers choose the best products for their needs. Why are you giving advice on Turf and Till? After spending three and a half years transforming my yard from a generic underestimated wasteland into the green haven of my dreams, I have felt two contradictory emotions: relief and sadness. I have realized that I will miss all the research, consideration, and hard work and started looking for new ways to approach this topic and make it a permanent part of my life. That was when I started helping others to fulfill their landscape-related dreams too. Since then, I have worked on numerous exciting projects and gained valuable experience. I see writing for Turf and Till as a natural continuation of my work in this field. Moreover, it is also an excellent opportunity to give back to the online community that has taught me a lot in my beginnings. What is your favorite part of landscaping? My favorite part is turning a blueprint into a reality. I am a huge overthinker, so planning is the most exciting yet also the most demanding and frustrating part of every project for me. When I am finally satisfied with the plan and can watch it turn into a real landscape, someone's garden, or yard, it is the most gratifying moment I know. If you had to give one piece of advice to someone fixing up their yard, what would it be? Don't be afraid to think big. There is always space for downgrades and compromises later, but don't settle with any of it before you even start. If I earned a dollar for each "impossible" idea I have seen turning into a reality, I would be very rich by now.
