About

Association of Professional
Landscape Designers
I am a Horticulturist and Landscape Designer who has a passion for plants and gardens.  My greatest joy is to share this passion with friends and clients to help them learn more about the living world around them and achieve the gardens and landscapes they desire.

As a designer I bring my education and work experience to help my clients create landscapes and gardens that they will truly enjoy.  I achieve this by working closely with them and determining their wants and needs.  By making them an integral part of the process I find they are better connected to the landscape at completion, rather than going away and delivering my design.  To this process I bring my experience to 'fill in the holes' and add important design elements of which they may not be aware.  This collaboration ensures my clients are happy and that we have created a beautiful landscape they will love.
