Process

Philosophy

We begin the design process with an understanding of our client’s goals as they relate to the site, architecture, and regional surroundings.  We are dedicated to the principle that sustainable practices produce elegant landscapes with limited maintenance requirements.  Our methodology includes sourcing local materials, specifying native plants, and integrating sound ecological practices into the design of each project.  Our gardens and landscapes can be found throughout New York and Connecticut, and each project is uniquely tailored to convey a sensitive integration between built and natural environments.

Residential design is our focus, and your project will be tailored to match your lifestyle and the style of your home. This mid-century modern residence was designed by architect John Johansen.  A series of vegetated swales and rain gardens buffer the existing wetland.  Whether you’re building a new pool or designing a small garden we can assist you through every step of the process from design to permitting, bidding, and construction observation.
