“My love for landscape design was sparked growing up when I would help my dad with his colorful flower gardens, unique shrubs, trees and his lawn, which he took immense pride in. While traveling in Europe and Japan, I became fascinated with how trees, plants, masonry, water and space could be combined to make unique, special places with their own “personalities” that impacted people deeply and made them feel great.
I learned the landscape construction trade from an old Italian stone mason, Ricardo. I took courses in landscape design, plant identification and site engineering at Radcliffe University— where all my designs were hand-drawn and hand-colored. As I installed more and more gardens, more and more people asked me to help design their yards. So I expanded the company, hiring hard-working, nice people who I could tell had the same innate drive to create things as I do. I’m so proud of the team we have, the work we do and the increased quality of life we’ve been able to bring to both our clients’ and our employees’ families.”
