Design work

I work with my clients to create and maintain gardens that:

are BEAUTIFUL evocative LANDSCAPES that use an appreciate WILD plants and use planting schemes and vernacular materials that respond to the LOCAL environment.

are DESIGNED to marry the aesthetic with the utilitarian and the ecological. For me a well designed garden needs to be HOLISTIC: LOOK GOOD and DO GOOD.

ENABLE a connection with the NATURAL PROCESSES that is intimate and fulfilling.
