Begin by knowing the lay of the land and water. Study the works of past masters, and recall the places of beauty that you know. Then, on your chosen site, let memory speak, and make into your own that which moves you most.

I have 35 years of local horticultural experience – teaching, designing, installing and maintaining gardens in Ulster and Dutchess counties, in NY’s Hudson Valley.

If you don’t know where to begin we can walk the property and discuss pros and cons – discussing new plantings, renovations, maintenance advice.

I can guide you in putting together a plant list.
