CRAFTING DISTINCTIVE LANDSCAPES OF ENDURING WONDER AND DELIGHT
MY PASSION IS THE CREATIVE DESIGN OF FINELY CRAFTED AND INNOVATIVE LANDSCAPES - A MELDING OF ARCHITECTURE WITH NATURE, A SOURCE OF WONDER AND DELIGHT IN ALL FOUR SEASONS.
"We loved our home and property, yet were not quite happy with our outdoor living spaces or the plantings. It simply did not function for us for our lifestyle — we enjoy entertaining, outdoor cooking, sports activities for our kids — nor was it an attractive setting. Will worked closely with us to meet all our goals and more."

OUR DESIGN PROCESS
After meeting with your family, I will study and draw several preliminary landscape concepts. Then we will meet and select the concept that meets your goals and combines our shared vision.
Next, I will develop a hardscape plan that includes the functional elements such as walkways, driveways, water features, retaining walls, and outdoor living spaces. These eventually define the basic structure of the design.
The plantings, lawns, and gardens will then be designed taking into account views, topography, soils and drainage, while respecting the existing trees. Privacy and screening of adjacent homes will be addressed by plantings, fences, and walls.
A compelling, elegant and detailed master plan will be documented in detail, optimizing these diverse factors.
