About Me

My name is Becky and I’m a lover of all things DIY and Real Estate. If you ask my husband or 3 small children, they would tell you that I’m obsessed with HGTV and starting projects around our home.

To say that our family is busy would be an understatement. My husband is a farmer and owns a trucking company, while I work in agriculture and also have my real estate license. We also have a few rental homes. Some days I think we took the saying, “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” a little too seriously. However, with the economy in our rural area, I’m thankful for the diversity.

About Boxwood Design Co

Why would I name my business Boxwood Design Co? Well, for me it is a reminder that while we may not choose certain things in life, we can see the beauty in them. Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best things.

When we bought our home, the majority of the landscaping was bushes, specifically boxwoods. While I don’t mind boxwoods, my initial reaction was that if I had landscaped the yard, I would have done it completely different. Yet over the last few years, as we have added to our home and yard, I have realized what a perfect backdrop the boxwoods really are. They allow other areas of our yard to be the focal point. They also have a simplistic beauty to them…they look good no matter what the season. Boxwoods are a daily reminder to me that I can work with whatever I’m given and create something wonderful out of it.

This blog is an outlet for me to show my real estate, design clients, and readers how to love their homes and what they already own. Just because things aren’t perfect or how you would have done them, doesn’t mean that you can’t work with them. There is something rewarding about turning lackluster into beautiful and functional.

I truly believe that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to make your space into something you love. It never ceases to amaze me what a coat of paint or some creative design can do.

I hope you enjoy this journey with me!
