Nancy Payne comes to our Roundtree Landscape Design and Sales team with 22 years of corporate and nonprofit managerial experience followed by 9 years of experience working with organizations and homeowners to create habitat landscapes. She owned a garden design firm, Organica Garden Design, for 5 years before launching her Habitats Landscapes venture. Nancy also served as a Garden Consultant for North Haven Gardens.
While working as a Garden Designer for REAL School Gardens, Nancy installed 40 habitat gardens in elementary schools in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. She has written gardening articles for The Irving Journal and the Valley Ranch Newsletter. Nancy is a Dallas County Master Gardener, a Texas Certified Nursery Professional with the Texas Nursery Landscape Association, and certified in landscaping with native plants by the Native Plant Society of Texas. She spends a lot of time outside work volunteering in different capacities around North Texas to share her love and knowledge of plants and habitat gardens.
Nancy has gardening experience in many different locations. She was born & raised in Puerto Rico for 15 years, then lived in New England, before finally settling in Texas, which she likens to “gardening on the moon”.
She loves sailing, reading, and traveling with her husband. They have two little Shih Tzu’s that make spending time as a family complete.
