About Us

Susan Bell created Hilltop Gardens in 2002. Her formal education was through George Washington University, Montgomery College, and is ongoing with the Maryland University Montgomery County Extension's Master Gardener program. 

Since 2009 Susan has been sharing her professional expertise as a speaker for Maryland University's Montgomery County Extension. She develops design talks using her original photographs for the annual Spring Conference, for master gardener training and also speaks at garden clubs, libraries, and civic associations.

Susan joined the Fallsgrove Community Garden in 2009 and serves on the garden board. She promotes 'no-till' gardening to protect the natural soil web of micro-organisms. The method dramatically reduced weeding and promotes top dressing the planting beds for fertility with organic ground covers.

The Hilltop Gardens team uses safe, effective and sustainable garden maintenance practices to keep your garden healthy. Plants are carefully selected for each site and exposure, properly installed and cared for.  

Our business has grown exclusively through referrals from satisfied customers. We would welcome the opportunity to deliver extraordinary services to you and earn your trust.
