“It's time for us to imagine a new kind of landscape, one in which beauty is not just a social convention or a glossy magazine image, but also an expression of our social values. Now in the 21st century, we can design, build and care for our landscapes so that in addition to looking attractive they will also work for our own good and the good of the larger world.”

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

Favorite Native Plants

Please enjoy here a small sample of the hundreds of beautiful plants native to western New England, where most of my projects are located. In every project, my goal is to have at least 80-90% of the plants be regionally-native, and to avoid using ornamental varieties whose flowers, foliage or fruit do not contribute to local bio-diversity.
