Landscape Design

This is a collection of selected work from my endeavors in landscape design. After spending many years working in the darkness of theatre, I’ve enjoyed designing outdoors in the daylight, and drawing on nature for inspiration. I also quite enjoy showing clients how to think outside the box, how perhaps the same place they’ve lived for years can be transformed into something new and inspiring.

M2 residence landscape design emphasized mass plantings for slope stabilization along backside of lot (which sloped down to a natural green space), tropically themed planting for the backyard BBQ patio, and an updated front entry with scrolling footpath. Attention was given towards easy care and screening next-door neighbors properties.
