The landscape design process isn't about collecting your pictures and
duplicating them. However, taking time to browse through magazines, books,
and here on the web before we meet, quickly jumps us past the starting
point in our theme and style discussions as soon as we sit down to your kitchen
When I look over the photos that have caught your eye, a theme
will inevitably emerge around your hardscape and
style choices that will guide me
towards creating a look that's truly your own.
For example, you may find a gorgeous gazebo that's just too grand for
your property size, but it's my job to take a good look at the style and
sensibilities of your pictures and freshly design something in
the same spirit. The finished design will be reminiscent of the
grand gazebo from your picture, but will be a structure that suits the scale of your grounds and fit with your overall theme.
The reverse example would be perhaps a picture of a quaint little
potting shed that you really like the "feel" of, but isn't
large enough for your planned use. Nevertheless, the picture will tell me a
lot about the mood you'd like your overall garden to reflect.
the old saying goes "a picture speaks 1,000 words", and it's
what your sample pictures "speak" that will guide
my thoughts as I create your customized landscape plan.

landscape plan was developed after
many consultations with the client. The wish list was
for - a small pond, a gazebo, a handy hot tub, and
patio space large enough for entertaining.
planted garden beds, a "river" of stone,
and a pair of large decorative stones perfect for seating,
this small suburban front yard has been transformed
into a garden room that invites you to linger.
