Landscaping and gardening are activities that reflect esthetics, beliefs, values, and critical life images. My goal as a designer is to understand your vision for your property and help you create the garden you dream about. I’ve gardened intensively for thirty-five years. I am especially interested in organic and sustainable methods that enhance health the soil and plants that of are the foundation of the environment that supports our health.
My interest in organic and sustainable gardening began long before I enrolled in the Harvard/Arnold Arboretum Landscape Institute. Fond images underlie my designs – running through the extensive gardens of my landscape designer grandmother; treks through woods and meadows identifying plants with my naturalist grandfather, and vegetable gardening and tending the landscape with my other grandfather.
A deep personal satisfaction has come through gardening. Healthy, beautiful plants arranged among pleasing landforms truly nurture my body and soul. As a homeopathic practitioner I understand the therapeutic resonance between plants and people. Now I balance my life between two professions – homeopathic consultation and landscape design – integrating the deepest currents of my life.
