My unique, plant-driven design style revolves around lush garden plantings. I love to incorporate the use of deep plant beds and large garden islands for utmost plant viewing appreciation. In small gardens, I also maximize the space to its full potential. In these plantings, I use new, rare, and unusual cultivars in addition to tried and true specimen plants. Repetition is important to accentuate varieties, textures, and colours in order to create a ‘natural composition’ in the space. Instead of relying solely on the flowering season of plants, I use foliage texture, shape, size, and colour for an overall, four-season garden.
