Creating Gardens That Connect People With Nature

A quiet place to sit

A quiet place to rest

Your garden is a reflection of who you are, your lifestyle and your priorities. Imagine:

  • a retreat for personal reflection and healing at the end of a busy day;
  • a place to connect with nature, listen to the wind, watch the birds;
  • a play space for kids and grownups;
  • a long Italian table for sharing a newly harvested meal;
  • a place for little ones to splash in water;
  • an outdoor office;
  • a secret hiding place;
  • a hidden love nest.

The benefits and uses for your garden are unlimited. You can have it all…a garden that is sustainable, affordable, robust, and delightful:

  • an evening around a campfire making music & telling stories;
  • sweet fragrances;
  • trees to climb;
  • a bad view to hide, a borrowed scene revealed;
  • a place for puttering in the vegetable patch;
  • colorful summer bouquets & winter evergreen wreaths;
  • croquet, straw hats and white dresses;
  • a wedding ceremony under an arch;
  • a good book, a stimulating conversation;
  • a view of the seasons; iris now, later the tomatoes;

From fresh, soft summer breezes to an old-fashioned winter snow scene under a full moon – a beautiful garden endures.
