Welcome and thank you for visiting. It is a big step to consider collaborating with a landscape designer. If we are a good match, you will be entrusting your thoughts, feelings and wishes about your future garden to me. I have two decades of experience designing and building beautiful gardens for families and individuals. My approach to garden design is very personal and each garden I design is a unique work of art.
The art and engineering that goes into design is very important, but healthy plants and a safe environment are extremely important as well. Queen Anne Gardens is a fully organic company. Gardens should not only be well-built and beautiful to look at, but they also need to be healthy places for people, pets and wildlife.
My company provides landscape design solutions that are highly textured, brave in scale, respectful to nature and the neighborhood. Let me help you fall in love with a design and a palette of plants that will bring you joy in every season.
Please contact me with any questions you may have or to set up an initial appointment.
THe Importance of good design
A garden is the place you go to come back to the best part of yourself. The more love you put into designing and developing a garden, the more it gives back to you. It becomes your sanctuary.
We live wired lives. We are dazzled by electronic devices, but there is nothing more high-definition and innovative than a garden.
A garden should be vibrant, colorful, constantly new, and life-affirming. It should reflect a personal definition of delight, be that lush, peaceful, whimsical, sacred and more.
