My interest in the field of Horticulture and Landscape Design grew from the many hours spent working with my grandmother in her extensive gardens designed by my great grandfather. This family love of gardening and design led me to Virginia Tech where I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Horticulture and a focus in Landscape Construction and Residential Design.
While at Virginia Tech, I explored many gardens up and down the East Coast, expanding my concept of how outdoor space can be both functional and beautiful. After two trips to Europe, visiting some of the most renowned gardens on earth, I settled into my career with a broader view of landscape design. My plant knowledge, design technique and hardscape expertise are grounded in over 15 years working in the landscape industry. These experiences give me the tools necessary to provide a comprehensive design unique to each client's site challenges, desires and goals.

From full site designs to simple front plantings, it is our design process that makes us unique. We want to take the necessary time to listen to your needs and desires to enable us to design a landscape that you are going to love. We provide 2D and 3D designs to help communicate to you the solutions we can provide for your garden, yard or patio.
Once we have provided you with a design, we have the technical know how to help you implement that plan. We can visit your project and help you or your landscaper layout the patios, planting beds or individual plants. We can answer questions and provide technical data to make sure your project is done right the first time.
Outdoor lighting helps to extend the enjoyment of your landscape investment into the night. In Vermont we have long nights in the fall and winter and lighting can accentuate the form of your trees and the textures of your hardscapes giving you that warm glow when you drive up on a dark evening. With LED landscape lighting you can get a great impact with minimal investment.
3D renderings of your design help you to envision the project before the first shovel goes in the ground.
