Design Statement

Creating well-designed gardens requires the consideration of many elements such as the existing environment surrounding the site, the individual needs of the client, and the way the space connects to the home. All of these elements inform the design.

I work closely with my clients to create gardens that feature a strong sculptural style with dynamic planting. By selecting materials and plants that are harmonious with the landscape I attempt to blur the edges of where the landscape ends and the natural environment begins. I strive to incorporate design aesthetics that are appropriate to the inherent site conditions and which also fit the various uses of the space.

By using this approach I aspire to establish personal, and emotional connections between people and places and to create a balance between form and function.
