Portfolio

Please accept this invitation to view a collection of garden spaces around New England. Each one of these landscapes is a reflection of the particular tastes, desires and requirements of the individual client. Each garden has a character of its own that will evolve, grow, and change from season to season. While paying particular attention to creating a design that matches the needs of the client, I strive to maintain a plan that is both functional and sensitive to the natural surroundings. Each one of these lovely landscape design projects has been a creative and rewarding endeavor due in part to the excellent craftsmen and creative artisans that I work very closely with to ensure successful project installation. I hope you enjoy viewing these lovely spaces as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

    Front Yard Face Lift

    We concentrated on creating the entrance as a focal point. We re-designed the steps by expanding the width to 12 feet to include areas anchoring the front door for large pots of seasonal flowers.
