Master Planning
A master plan clarifies the relationship of the inhabitants to the rest of the landscape. Planning begins with a review of the client's habits and dreams, and an assessment of the land's ecological health. Once the boundaries of the design have been established by the client's needs and the limitations of the property, the master plan draws together the constructed landscape elements and the natural elements into a logical relationship.

The master plan pulls the landscape out of chaos, the plantings define the spaces and their moods. Details personalize the design. Sometimes the details are focal points: perhaps an enormous and beautifully glazed pot. Sometimes they are subtle: a change in materials adding texture to a landing. Sometimes they are practical: a large piece of weathered granite set as a landing at the base of a flight of stairs, where lawn would be quickly worn away by passing feet. (Learn more at

Gardens can be designed around a time of day - breakfast, for example, or the cocktail hour. Woodland plantings can be as striking as a formal perennial border. What could be lovelier than a mass of white bleeding heart at the edge of a clearing or oriental lilies sparkling in a mass of ferns...?

Has been called the bones of the earth, and from it we shape the skeleton of the landscape. Rough, lichen-covered boulders hold up a hillside thick with blueberry bushes, cut granite blocks form a wall. Stone provides more than structure, it gives color and texture, a warm spot to doze in the sun, a cool path underfoot.
