Garden Design
I usually work at the residential scale in garden design, and bring an aesthetic of “domesticated wild” to the design. I like to specify native plants whenever possible to enhance the habitat for birds, butterflies and insects, as well as people; and strive to achieve a richness of plant diversity while maintaining a sense of order and peace. Clients are collaborators in how the gardens are envisioned, and the craftsman who install the job bring their own expertise to the site.
