“This is not a coffee table book with idealistic, visionary, what-if essays and seductive pictures. Instead, its well-organized, useful, text-rich information takes a seemingly complex topic and makes it understandable and usable.”

Landscape Architecture

Designing home landscapes to be: • Ecologically rich • Comfortably livable • Energy efficient • Inviting to wildlife • Naturally beautiful.

Designed Landscapes

I hope these photos of my work will give you a good idea about my parcticular style and approach to creating comfortable home landscapes. Here you can see that I favor using Goshen Stone native to my region and/or other locally-harvested stone, and that my style tends to be relaxed and informal, but that even formal designs can be made inviting and livable. You can also see an assortment of native plants "in action" here in my designs.
