Design Principles & Ethos
Form follows function.
How you use a space defines the parameters for the design. I seek to identify, separate and distill the varied lifestyle requirements for your space, narrowing in on the key criteria to develop the best design for your unique landscape.
Right plant in the right place.
A simplistic statement that speaks volumes in garden planning. Factors such as sun, soil health, wind, exposure, climate and sustainability, growth habit, longevity, maintenance, pests, seasonality, and client preference all inform thoughtful plant selection.
Proportion, unity and balance.
Hardscape construction and softscape plantings are inextricably intertwined and must relate to each other in a harmonious and balanced aesthetic.
This is your space.
I enjoy working with a wide range of styles but the most critical factor informing plant selection and landscape functionality is my clients needs; the design has to work for your lifestyle and criteria, otherwise it fails.
Genuine testimonials from clients
