PHILOSOPHY

Beautiful landscapes connect people to nature, drawing people outside-  to socialize, to experience, to unwind. Once outdoors, the opportunity exists to teach people about the environment around them- how wildlife interact with plants, how light changes through the seasons, or how water manipulates the land.

 

Those limitless lessons encourage respect for nature beyond the home, fostering a sense of environmental stewardship regionally and beyond. 

I design carefully currated landscapes to bridge that connection of people to the environment. I design beautiful spaces, rooted in nature.

ABOUT ME

Lee Armillei

PRINCIPAL,

DESIGNER

I have been designing, constructing, and managing landscape projects since 2008. From riparian buffer restoration to residential master plans to detail-oriented garden designs, I observe each site carefully and listen to the clients' goals to create the ideal landscape for each space. 

With a background in ecological landscape design, each project I take on is steeped in environmentally--friendly landscape practices, including:

  • using native plants and their cultivars

  • managing stormwater on each site

  • ensuring minimal soil disturbance

  • identifying invasive species

  • sourcing local materials when possible

I utilize this background in ecology and design to create beautiful and immersive landscapes of which my clients can be proud.

I am a member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) and remain active in the industry by teaching fellow horticulturalists and the public alike about sustainable land management. I graduated from Delaware Valley College (now known as Delaware Valley University) with a degree in Environmental Design and Ornamental Horticulture. In my free time, I can be found practicing yoga or exploring the city with my husband, daughter, and son.
