The Art of Design

My Passion and my Practice

My design process is simple and concise with a focus on facilitation and ease for my clients. Through observation, evaluation and communication, I learn how to constructively juxtapose the demands of the site with your specific goals.The design process begins with a Site Visit / Consultations (read more) whereby I walk the property and listen to your ideas, needs, and desires.The Contract For Design Services will then be submitted to you for your review, signature, and deposit to begin design work. Within two to three weeks I will present the Draft Concept Plan to you at your home. This Plan provides the concept of the design from which to make changes, amendments, additions or deletions. I can then alter this Plan accordingly and present it along with any necessary supporting documents to the appropriate local entities.Upon approval of the design, the Final Concept Plan will be developed and presented to you. This Plan is complete with elevations, descriptions of hardscape materials, and a general indication of which plants will be used. At this time I will offer and discuss my services in the role of Project Manager.

Project Management

When you are ready to implement your project, I will be with you every step of the way, from the design process to the installation. The best result is obtained when I manage the landscape project and work with the landscape contractors from start to finish to ensure that the vision of the design is executed according to your standards.

Garden Coaching/Horticultural Services

A newly installed garden must be cared for and maintained to ensure that it will grow and continue to thrive. I can create an individualized landscape maintenance plan for you as well as offer regular site visits to help you cultivate and maintain your garden. I also offer services to homeowners with specific concerns for their existing gardens.


Artful Container Design

The addition of well designed and carefully placed containers add that special finishing touch to your exterior spaces. My services include visiting your home, discussing the location of containers, recommending and resourcing them and then executing the planting.
