For over 20 years I've been designing gardens. During this time I've explored the many ways a garden can meet various needs- a place to sit, eat, relax, play, grow things, and entertain.

Is that all?

I readily admit that my body of work reflects a desire to tap into the practical needs of the client, but also to strive to go beyond the practical into the realm of the sublime- where intellectual, metaphysical, aesthetic, spiritual, and artistic goals all combine!

With these goals in mind, I’ve created residential gardens, tea gardens, public gardens, ceremonial spaces, and a roof top garden for a very hip hotel in West Hollywood.

All of them were inspired by the specific needs and aspirations of my clients, as well as the ‘genius’ and limitations of site and budget, resulting in unique outcomes. All were designed with a desire to tread lightly upon the environment.

Services Provided
Included in my services are the following:
Individual site consultations, landscape design, selection of outdoor furniture, and other garden ornamentations, selection of color palette for house (if needed).
