Creating beautiful, long lasting GARDENS AND 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
