Primary Business Landscape Architecture/Design, Educational Institution
Other Primary Business I have been a gardener and designer for 22 years with a focus on designing ecologically sound landscapes. I am a certified Master Gardener through the Massachusetts Horticultural Society (2000) as well a Certified Native Plant Designer and Horticulturalist (Advanced) through The Native Plant Trust. I am also a certified designer through the Landscape Design Council of MA. The focus of my work is designing gardens/landscapes that work with nature, not imposing on it. I place an emphasis on integrating native plants, addressing erosion issues and using water harvested on site for irrigation (such as dry rivers, rain gardens and rain barrels). My knowledge of a plethora of plant-related issues is key to a successful job. I have a wide knowledge base of the identification and treatment of plant diseases/infestations, proper planting techniques, names and characteristics of hundreds of plants (including trees, shrubs and invasives), pruning, soil ecology, erosion control and multi-season interest, I have multiple vendors that reliably sell only high quality material and I insist on personally purchasing plant material.
