Beautiful landscapes connect people to nature, drawing people outside- to socialize, to discover, to unwind. Once outdoors, the opportunity exists to teach people about the environment around them- how wildlife interacts 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.
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 garden design and 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 digging in my garden, finding solitude in yoga, or spending time with my husband and our four young kids.
