Home / About Us: Our Story


Hello!  Our names are Mary and Tom, and we love to garden! 

Mary, the girl in Garden like a Girl, has been a Financial Planner for over 22 years managing her own company for most of that. Her focus is to help her clients plan for a comfortable retirement.

Tom is a full-blown product geek who has spent his 22+ year career on product creation in the sports industry focusing on performance enhancing gloves, footwear, and apparel.

As an avid gardener, Mary has “wear tested” virtually every garden glove made and found that the offerings fit poorly, do not protect her hands and nails, do not keep dirt out, and almost always develop holes in the fingertips.

With no good choices for women available we combined our talents and created Garden like a Girl, a company focused on a woman’s specific needs for fit, durability, and protection.

We are committed to creating superior quality gloves while being earth conscious and giving back to cancer research.

Here’s to digging deep!
