A well-designed garden is a delicate balance of beauty with practicality; form with function. It offers a sanctuary where you can slow the pace of life and embrace the natural world.The well-designed garden is also sustainable. With plants matched to location, it ages gracefully, providing pleasure both now and for years to come.  I am an experienced and empathetic landscape and garden designer working for over twelve years to create New England gardens that enhance people’s lives and enrich their spirits.I provide a wide range of landscape and garden design services: including on-site property reviews (where I leave you with new insights and design sketches) up to full landscape designs and/or garden plans (resulting in complete scale drawings and plant lists).   And I have worked on projects of all sizes, from small in-town properties to large country estates.

Perhaps you would like to design your own garden?  I  offer individual coaching and small group workshops where, with my guidance and support, you can create your own landscape and garden design.

You can find out more about my philosophy and approach to landscape and garden design on my two websites devoted to garden writing: North Country Reflections and North Country Gardener.

As an educator I give presentations and classes on landscape and garden design to a wide variety of organizations, including garden clubs, senior groups, and Master Gardeners.  Everything is illustrated with beautiful photographs of Vermont gardens.

I bring a unique blend of the artistic and the quantitative to all my
endeavors.  I studied landscape design at Vermont Technical College.
As a Vermont Certified Horticulturist I have an excellent knowledge of
trees, shrubs and perennials that will thrive in our climate, and as a Vermont
Master Gardener I bring a practical understanding of real gardening.
