Chefs & Property Management


Chef Jeramie Robison

Executive Chef
Thompson Hotel Dallas, TX.

I have had the pleasure of working with Urban Dirt Gardening Co. for over 3 years now. Piper was such a pleasure working with on conceptualizing our space to building it out so the garden can thrive. Piper worked through many hurdles due to our property still being under construction while building our gardens. She was able to get all materials up to our ninth floor terrace and get it up and running in a very little window of time. Piper even did a sun test to see how much sunlight the beds would be getting what needs to grow in what areas of the bed. She has a very knowledgeable and reliable team to keep the garden in perfect shape through all the Texas season changes as well. The team and I have really enjoyed having these herbs, flowers, and peppers to incorporate into our dishes and cocktails. I would hands consider Urban Dirt fCo. or your raise beds and I promise you that you would truly enjoy the process and product results.

I’ve worked with Urban Dirt both professionally and personally. They successfully installed a (5 figure $) large-scale culinary garden at a DFW office campus on time and on budget. Plants are thriving and looking beautiful, but most of all our chef is happy! I would highly recommend Urban Dirt for your commercial or residential garden needs. -2017

Piper has been growing most of our Mediterranean herbs for over 3 years. This garden is just 20 steps from my kitchen and is a very great way to bring the campus employees into our restaurant.

Working with Urban Dirt Company for our herb and veggie gardens has been exciting, educational, and so much fun.  Piper brings extensive knowledge and expertise to every aspect of her work and she is an absolute joy to work with!

The thought that went into our garden planning and the quality of the materials used has made our space visually appealing and highly functional for both herb and veggie production as well as tenant engagement opportunities. Piper’s passion and expertise continue to be demonstrated through her ongoing attention to our thriving garden and her commitment to sharing her knowledge with our tenants through educational gardening workshops. 

We would highly recommend Piper and Urban Dirt Company to anyone looking to create a beautiful and productive garden space in an urban environment.

Mark and Joanna Hensley

McKinney, Tx & Now Mississippi!

We recently purchased land in Mississippi to start an organic farm and garden. We had no idea where to start so we called Piper. She had previously designed a small cottage garden for us so we knew she was an incredible resource. She is intelligent and creative but also possesses deep experiential knowledge. Piper is kind, patient, and relatable. She is an excellent teacher with a gift for communicating essential information while also instilling and inspiring confidence in her client. If you hire Piper, you definitely won’t be disappointed. She is simply amazing!
