Stephen has recently received a Level 3 Certification in Ornamental Horticulture from Longwood Gardens studying over 1,800 plants and is one only of two or three others to hold this Certification.
The plant-driven nature inspired gardens that he creates are beautiful, lush, have meaning, and are layered and intermingled with multi-seasons of flowering interest with overlapping flowering blooms throughout the growing season that attract butterflies, birds, and other pollinators and have structural interest throughout the winter. He'll design and create unique hardscaping features - patios, walkways, outdoor living spaces, gazebos, ponds, water-features, water-management remedies, etc. followed by the surrounding plant forward gardens. Many of his gardens and landscapes are based upon solar and celestial events and the passage of time using the fourth dimension in conjunction with and the reinterpretation of the new movements in garden design, naturalistic, and ecological plantings. They are environmentally friendly using sustainable green practices with a combination of designed hardscapes and the use of native and ornamental plant species that are site appropriate for the soil, lighting, and environmental conditions.
His gardens are in the realm between and uniting Naturalistic Plantings, The New Perennial Movement, The New American Garden Design, and Ecological Planting Design, with an emphasis on creating beautiful habitat gardens that attract butterflies, birds, and other pollinators with an eye on low-maintenance with minimal input.
