“Recognizing that our society is facing increasing ecological challenges, I am committed to providing a responsible approach to landscape design. I will strive to employ the proper set of proven skills and techniques necessary to create an end project that is both aesthetically pleasing and physically beneficial to our environment. My approach to Landscape and Garden Design has always been from the viewpoint of the Artist rather than a Technical Draftsman. Through this method I am more able to interpret the natural elements of a site and its unique challenges. This enables me to often transform a perceived eyesore or obstacle into an appealing focal point. I utilize my years of ‘hands on’ experience when structuring a landscape. This is an investment of time and money for the client. It should not become a maintenance burden. Longevity, Functionality and Superior Aesthetic Qualities are my goals.”
