Owner, landscape designer, estimator, project manager, and landscape contractor.
When I was twelve years old I helped build a large Japanese-style garden. That was my introduction to the art of landscaping, and it initiated my life-long passion for the transformative power of gardens and landscaping.
I went on to study ornamental horticulture, and then landscape architecture at the University of Minnesota and the University of Washington.
After college, I decided to stay in Washington, swayed by the beauty of the area and the garden-friendly climate. I worked for a number of landscape firms, large and small, before starting my own landscaping business in 1990. My strength is in combining the creative eye of a designer with the practical, hands-on know-how and experience of a contractor.
As a small business owner, every single landscaping project gets my full personal attention. I limit the number of projects I have at any time. That way I can ensure a good connection with my clients, and the ability to fulfill the project goals, while enjoying the landscape building process.
When I revisit gardens I’ve built, and see how they’ve grown and matured with time, as well as becoming an integral and valued part of people’s daily lives, I feel tremendous satisfaction at having facilitated that transformative process.
Working with the earth, stone, wood, and plants is a magical alchemy and a meditation that makes landscaping enjoyable, and makes our human place on this garden planet a little bit better. I look forward to sharing the transformation!
