Home Gardens

 

My design aesthetic comes from a life time of enjoying gardens and experimenting with changing its design or seeing it change. The point at which it turned into a business, was when I was asked to create fifty center pieces for a friends wedding. Loathe to throw away cut flowers, I planted instead, fifty living succulent compositions in terra-cotta containers, tended to six months before the wedding, which still live in the gardens of all who took a planter home that night.

I am for continuous repurposing, using all that is already on sight or on hand before running a tab.  The devil in my designs are in their detail and in taking time, allowing the client to absorb and direct the design process, as we work together to see what can be, and what to let go.
