I am passionate about creating new experiences while learning from those who have come before me. Whether I'm designing gardens, exploring trails in the mountains or working on a new culinary approach to dinner, I enjoy the creative immersion of these experiences and pride in the accomplishments.
My enthusiasm for the natural and preserved spaces in northern New England has influenced my ongoing study and development as a design consultant for conservation lands and trusts in the region. I've served as a Volunteer Trail Adopter for the Appalachian Mountain Club since 2007.
I have 23 years of experience in the design, installation and stewardship of a variety of landscapes through-out New England. I am a Certified Permaculture Designer (PDC); Accredited Organic Land Care Practitioner (AOLCP); New Hampshire Certified Landscape Professional (NHCLP); Maine DEP Certified in Erosion Control Practices and LakeSmart certified
We design and administrate landscape, conservation and permaculture projects statewide in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. We specialize in ecological design for large scale residential and conservation properties yet we are also experienced in more formal garden design in the Seacoast, the Kennebunks and greater Portland.
We welcome opportunities to design a variety of gardens whether they be in-town pocket gardens in Portsmouth, Burlington, Kennebunkport or Portland, shoreland landscapes in the lakes regions or mountainside vacation homes in the north country of this beautiful region.
