Designing a garden for a client is an honor and a pleasure. I like to meet you and conduct a detailed survey of your needs and wants, how the garden will be used etc, this will then allow me to propose a garden design that will reflect and, hopefully exceed your expectations.
English Gardens and Designs is based in Riverside, CT, and I work locally to design and install residential gardens with a flair of “Englishness”. As the owner I am always on site and work with my well trained crew to create gardens of all sizes and each one is totally unique, like it’s owner.
I offer a full range of services from design, installation, and maintenance. I manage all aspects of your projects, including bringing in contractors for irrigation, lighting, tree work, hardscaping and any other specific requirements you may have. Gardens are not created over night and I recommend developing your garden in phases with different installations over the years to suit your budget and evolving taste and preferences.
I am particularly committed to preserving the environment and where possible, endeavor to design gardens with the view to improving habitat, conserving resources and using sustainable organic materials. I am very aware of how important sustainable landscaping is to the future.
We also support local businesses by supplying plants and materials from nearby, high quality nurseries, providing the best plants for your garden.
I am a member of the Royal Horticulture Society, Nation Trust and Royal Oak Society, The Federated Garden Club of Connecticut, and The New York Botanical Gardens where I serve on the Landscape Design Student Alumni Board.
