     For homeowners seeking to improve and enhance their surroundings, I offer a personalized approach to crafting dreamscapes that perfectly align with your vision and lifestyle. I call it Lifestyle Design. My meticulous attention to detail ensures that every element - from vibrant plantings to exquisite hardscapes - harmonizes seamlessly, resulting in a place of functionality, tranquility and beauty.

     I will work with you to develop your ideal landscape or garden solution and act as your personal advocate at all times. I am happy to work with your own contractor or provide references to many reputable contractors that I have a solid working relationship with. 

For Contractors


The 'Landscapers Architect'

     Having spent decades in the Design/Build industry and as a licensed landscape contractor myself, I understand and appreciate the vital role contractors play in realizing exceptional projects. I have been in your boots. Unlike many of my architect colleagues, I have actually built almost everything I design. From extensive plantings to hardscapes, irrigation, drainage and lighting; I have dug the holes, laid the pavers, glued the pipe and wired the lights.  I lean on that practical experience when I provide design solutions for my contractor clients.

     No matter where you are located, I can use my experience and cutting edge design technology to produce compelling, professional designs and renderings that will make you stand out from the competition. I am also happy to advise and consult with you and your team on any landscape construction issues that you may have questions about. I am on your side... I am your architect, and for a fraction of the cost of hiring someone full time.

For Business


     I provide a full range of landscape architectural solutions tailored to business owners. My offerings encompass tree surveys, permit drawings, and customer experience planning and design. Whether you're looking for expert assistance with your landscape or planning requirements or you wish to offer your clients, and their customers, a one-of-a-kind experience, I have you covered. Don't wait until the last minute – reach out today and avoid the permitting hassle!

For Developers


     Unlock your project's potential with my expertise in project visioning. Whether it's creating conceptual renderings, site planning, design, or addressing elements like planting, hardscape, drainage, and irrigation, I play a pivotal role in translating your vision into actionable plans. With experience spanning small retail commercial projects, apartment and condo developments, to large-scale municipal planning, I bring valuable insights to every aspect of your project.
