“Don’t make something unless it is both necessary and useful; but if it is both necessary and useful, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful.” - SHAKER PHILOSOPHY


I craft all my gardens with a deep and heartfelt intuition for design. My belief is that beauty is our reward for solving problems well and never overlooking the details. It is a joy to coax the vision and dreams my clients have out of a landscape.

Dream gardens, in my opinion, share five simple traits:

  1. They are appropriate to their natural, built and cultural environment
  2. They are healthy reflecting the care and quality of their design, installation and maintenance
  3. They demonstrate a sincere respect for mother earth and all her systems
  4. They are as functional as they are beautiful
  5. Most importantly, they capture the spirit and style of the people who inhabit them
