Where a Philosophy Becomes a Mission

 

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."  Marcel Proust

My mission centers on achieving a fluid symbiosis between the built environment and nature.  The landscape surrounding your house should integrate with the structure, creating a unified visual and physical statement that reflects your personality, style or an aesthetic.

My designs tend to follow simple clean lines, with bold forms and a visual reliance on the plant materials' detail, texture and character.  Structures are woven into the fabric of the landscape, with a sensitivity to existing architectural or historic references. My vision is to develop a plan that creates benign transportation through a landscape utilizing plantings, allees, focal points, views, stonework and exterior elements.

I am a natural problem solver in the landscape and enjoy nothing more than getting down and dirty.  I will tackle any job from grave sites, perennial borders and vegetable gardens to terraces, stonewalls, cascading waterfalls and complex biodiverse plantings.  I want everyone to benefit from the intrinsic visual beauty and joy of being outdoors.perennial_copy.jpg
