“The fusion of practicality, comfort, pleasure and ecological soundness is a hallmark of Sue Reed’s design work. Her extraordinary abilities to thoroughly diagnose situations, develop appropriate solutions to shortcomings, and clearly explain process and detail have been repeatedly demonstrated during her years of private practice and teaching at the Conway School of Landscape Design.”

“Sue Reed is an engaging teacher and inspirational designer. She makes difficult concepts accessible, and helps her students reach their potential with a unique combination of high standards and compassion.”

“Sue Reed is a rarity among landscape architects. She is a creative designer, with an unusually comprehensive understanding of the native plants and ecosystems of New England. She possesses technical expertise in such areas as earthwork and construction, yet is also dedicated to approaching landscape design with ecological sensitivity. On top of that, she is an engaging and energetic teacher.”

“Sue Reed harbors great empathy for ‘walking lightly on the earth.’ As a teacher, she has many important ideas to share, and her students have been the immediate and long-term beneficiaries. She writes effectively and is an engaging speaker. She is also technically proficient, a great team player, and above all a practical person. Sue is versatile, and a force to be reckoned with!”

“Sue has always given great attention to detail, and her decisions about the selection and placement of all native plant materials in her designs are excellent.”

“Sue Reed did a great job on a challenging pair of baseline documentation reports for restrictions held by The Trustees of Reservations. Her landscape architecture and field skills were particularly helpful in getting these complex reports completed on time and under budget.”
