Landscape designer, writer and speaker

If you’ve ever wanted to add the beautiful chaos of a healthy flowering meadow to your landscape, this presentation will demystify the steps.

As a landscape designer, writer, and speaker, I aim to bring together the art, science, and craft of landscape planning in earth-friendly ways. My design services include landscape assessments, comprehensive plans, plant research, and project management. My specialties include lawn reduction, groundcovers, flowering meadows, waterside buffer gardens, deer-resistant designs, and foundation gardens. I am well-versed in the use of native plants, as well as reduction and removal of invasive weed species.

I write about landscape design and horticulture with a focus on a healthy relationship between people, plants, and the landscape. My Green & Growing column, now entering its fifth year, appears every two weeks in The Day community newspapers throughout southeastern Connecticut and western Rhode Island.

As former editor/guide for Lawns and Lawn Alternatives at About.com/The Spruce, I covered a variety of low-impact methods to grow turf and improve green spaces. My work has also been published in Lawn & Landscape, Connecticut Woodlands, The Habitat, and many other websites and publications.
