I BELIEVE IN CLIENT-CENTRIC AND CLIENT-ENGAGED DESIGN

Essentially, I’m a matchmaker.  I match the landscape to you creating a personalized landscape that you will love.  
 
As I see it, client-centric and client-engaged design involves two critical actions: listening and respect.
 
By listening – really listening – for what matters to you, I hear your preferences that determine the choices I make for the landscape.  
 
That’s what makes the landscape uniquely yours.
 
And respect? I see it as a privilege and honor to transform your property.
 
You and I will have an open dialogue because this is your garden and your property… and your preferences are highly personal.
 
 

I SPEAK PLANT AND PLANTS SPEAK TO ME 

I have a deep knowledge of what plants want, how they will inhabit a particular space and what they will look like when they “grow up.”  This I have gleaned from my education in botany and landscape design and through three decades of working professionally in the field.
 
My true and deep love for plants makes me a curious, caring, and lifelong student. I have a flair for appropriate and creative plant selection and layout – and this extra effort makes for a landscape that will thrive over time.
 
I choreograph the dance between the architecture of a space and the artistry of the plant selection.  It is a highly integrative approach…and all ties back to you and what makes the landscape uniquely yours.
 

TIMELESS QUALITY OF EXPERIENCE

I love it when clients tell me decades after an installation that they still love their landscape.  This is timeless quality in action!
 
I think of a garden more as a stage than a canvas – because it is a living story with plants and garden accents both as lead characters and props. Like a playwright, I deliberate and even agonize over the right plant combinations from a health, visual and experiential viewpoint.
 
The plant combinations are like characters that move you and others through the story of the garden.
 
There often is a tug-of-war between the current and future conditions, aesthetics, and needs of the landscape that evolve over time – because plants grow and change!  This is especially true in newer gardens where finding a balance between instant gratification and longer-term rewards can be challenging.
