We are dedicated to creating restorative outdoor environments that are infused with natural beauty, provide habitat, purify air and water, encourage social interaction, and foster human healing.
We believe in creating enduring, innovative landscapes which express cultural values and a strong environmental ethic. Design expression is derived from an understanding of the regional landscape, specific conditions of the site and the needs of the program. Inspiration is taken equally from environmental factors such as geology, vegetation, history and culture. Through our experience, we have maintained a commitment to creating finely-crafted landscapes that are always culturally relevant and unique to the site's context.
We acknowledge that landscapes are not static and will continue to evolve over time, long after a project's opening day. A successful site will have a framework that is strong and flexible enough to adapt to any changes that arise based on user needs, environmental factors, or management strategies.
We are committed to a culture of collaboration between design disciplines and our clients, and the long-term environmental stewardship of our landscapes. Using traditional materials, a keen awareness of the environment and classic principles, we follow a tenet that interprets and celebrates the historical and cultural context of place.
We strive to:
- exceed clients’ expectations and create elegant landscapes with timeless appeal.
- inspire gardeners and potential gardeners to contribute to plant biodiversity, provide a haven for wildlife and human spirit, while doing no harm to the earth, wildlife, or those who maintain the garden.
- continually learn from the natural world, other gardeners, and the scientific community about new and effective techniques for sustainable garden design and management.
