I have been designing landscapes for 20 years, working on large developments, subdivisions, wetlands restoration and residential design. These days, I gravitate toward residential design and green projects, with the goal of creating beauty and inspiring awe, while doing the right thing for the environment. I am the co-founder and Vice President of Grow It Green Morristown, a non-profit organization that developed the Early Street Community Garden and the beautiful Urban Farm, a learning farm geared toward the agricultural education of our local schoolkids.
Residential design allows me to indulge in planting design, as well as the more typical practice of site design, construction and drainage. As an avid gardener, I am interested in all garden styles, from the simplicity of a contemporary project to the constantly changing mixed border of an English garden.
As an environmentalist, it is important to me that our landscapes are environmentally sustainable, and will cause no harm to future generations. My landscapes have always been "green", and now with the increased interest in responsibility to our Earth, my clients are reflecting my beliefs. There are many ways to be ecologically sensitive, such as eliminating exotic invasive plants from our design vocabulary, installing rain gardens to clean runoff before it reaches the storm drains, capturing rainwater to irrigate gardens, and minimizing our carbon footprint by using local materials.
