Since 1981, I have created more than 3,000 landscape designs, ranging from small residential projects to large commercial projects. No matter the scope, I tailor each project to the desires and needs of the individual client and make it a priority to solve landscape challenges quickly and effectively. Projects may involve scale-drawn master plans with hardscapes and plantings or on-site consultations using instant visualization tools. My design guidance enables you to understand the possible options available to you regarding hardscapes, structures and plantings. I approach each client's project with problem solving and space planning that considers a range of possibilities, unlike design-build firms who often promote only what they specialize in.
Michael Dirr, the author of The Manual of Woody Landscape Plants, has called me “the best landscape designer in Cleveland.” I designed and produced three winter holiday shows for Cleveland Botanical Garden. I also served as project coordinator for the National Park Service’s Second Annual Historic Landscape Conference.
Sharing experiences and insights with those interested in landscape design remains extremely important to me. In the past, I have taught landscape design at the Cleveland Institute of Art and have served as president of the Northern Ohio Perennials Society and The Design Network.
Here are just a few of my non-residential projects:
•Blossom Music Center
-Shaker Heights Country Club
•Mayfield Country Club
•The Cleveland Public Library’s Sensory Garden for the Blind
•Ruffing Montessori School
•Lake Hospital System
•University Suburban Medical Center/South Euclid

•Ohio a Bicentennial Portrait.
