Helping choose street tree species for the Town of Lexington as a 15-year member of the Lexington Town Tree Committee.

Services Notes I create landscape designs for residential clients using computer-aided design software. Clients also get selected images with details to help them choose a planting palette. I have successfully handled conservation commission appearances, and am familiar with many wetland shrubs. Usually, I arrange to get installation quotes from landscape construction companies, and then work with the chosen provider to obtain a successful and pleasing landscape result. I also provide one-time consultations, i.e., walk-arounds with clients to identify plants, problem areas, and possible ways to improve or proceed.
