Three gardens

These three very different gardens from my portfolio illustrate contrasting design ideals, project scope, and choice of plants. Each was created to meet the singular desires of the owners and to complement the specialness of the site.

I want to thank these wonderful clients for the opportunity to work with them on their own unique and individual gardens.

A small courtyard garden

This compact easily-maintained garden space, just 24 feet square, was designed for the gardener who wanted to relax close to the house while being surrounded by her flowers.



A layered hillside garden

Here in this quiet in-town neighborhood the land rises steeply behind the houses. This project involved taming the  hillside and, in the process, creating a beautiful layered garden behind the house.



An expansive country garden

The expansive new garden for this country property creates a gentle transition to the rural landscape beyond.
