Columbus Ohio Landscape Architecture and Garden Design
Creating beautiful, long lasting landscapes that bring joy, peace, and appreciation to my client's lives
The homeowners were looking for a new front yard for their Georgian style home in Bexley. They had just added a new rain harvesting system to collect water from their roof for an irrigation system and needed to hide the access points to the underground tanks. They also wanted to add a passenger drop-off, front entry patio and fountain to the front of the property.
We worked together to develop a plan that met their needs and provide beauty and change throughout the year while keeping with the style of the home. This project was the recipient of an Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association Award, and a home on the CLA garden tour.
The owners of this Arlington home were looking for a new masterplan for their recently renovated home. The large corner lot is exposed on many sides and has many important views out from inside the home. We worked together to create a sense of both welcome and privacy throughout the property. The colors in the plantings are reserved, and meant to be full and interesting throughout the year.
The homeowners were looking to create privacy and interest around their new pool. We strove to create the feeling of swimming in a garden. The plantings are designed to be full and changing throughout the year.
Lamb of God Lutheran
The goal of this project was to add color and interest to the front of our church while hiding some unfortunately placed air conditioners and lines. The garden is designed to provide big masses of color throughout the year. Grasses and evergreens provide color and movement in the winter and tie the garden to the surrounding landscape.
The owner of this home wanted to create a new landscape full of native plants. The garden includes a wide variety of native flowers and grasses. We have worked together over the last few years to install the garden in phases.
Food and Flora Garden
At my home garden in Columubus, Ohio I have created a space where I can experiment with a large variety of plants, but still have and organized looking garden. My wife and I have a large vegetable and cutting garden and fruit trees and vines. The back of the yard is screened with espaliered fruit trees and the side yard fence is a trellis for wine grapes. We are hoping for our first vintage this year and plan to add a patio and overhead grape arbor this winter.
Modern Rain Garden
The owners of this early twentieth century home were looking for more functional living space in their backyard, and to make the yard more durable for an energetic family dog. They were also interested in redirecting some of the rainwater from their roof into a rain garden.
We worked together to develop a plan that gave them more living and entertaining space and centered around a rain garden and metal runnel that collected storm water from the roof. The plants were selected to be durable, but also add color throughout the year.
The owner of this cottage wanted to create a comfortable area to enjoy a fire and watch the surrounding woods and creek. The patio and firepit are cut into the hillside below the nearby deck, this gives the space a cozy protected feel, and focuses views to the nearby stream and woods.
The owners of this home wanted to add lots of color and interest to their property. The husband is an excellent gardener and wanted to make room for the peonies he brought from his previous home. We worked together to create a garden that blooms from spring to fall and lots of evergreens to look composed in the winter.
This project is currently under development. The homeowners and I have been working to create a new outdoor living area for their backyard. The project includes a deck over an outdoor kitchen and bar, a dining terrace, and a sitting area with a fire pit. We initially worked through a number of possible designs for the space before settling on a final direction.
