Landscape gardening reflect esthetics, beliefs, values, and critical life images. As a designer I need to understand your vision and help you create the garden you dream about. I’ve gardened intensively for thirty-five years. I am a certified in organic landcare by NOFA and a graduate of the landscape design program at Harvard/Arnold Arboretum’s Landscape Institute. I am especially interested in sustainable methods that enhance our health and that of the environment.
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 land forms 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.
