My design services include landscape assessments, comprehensive plans, plant research, and project management. My specialties include lawn reduction, groundcovers, flowering meadows, waterside buffer gardens, deer-resistant designs, and foundation gardens. I am well-versed in the use of native plants, as well as reduction and removal of invasive weed species.

I aim to use four resources in every project: Artistic design, horticultural science, landscape craft, and an interpretation of how people relate to the location. When those resources are working together, we can produce enduring and satisfying landscape installations

I also make about 25 presentations each year on landscape topics for a wide variety of audiences. I write about plants, gardens, and landscape ecology for print and the Web.
