About The Designer

Because of my love of nature and the outdoors I started out as a landscape photographer. My photographs have been used in several magazines, calendars, and posters. After having observed nature for so many years I felt that I wanted to duplicate some of the beauty found in nature.

After going back to college and receiving a degree in horticulture, I did further study in landscape design at SIU and Missouri Botanical Garden.

Unlike nature, the client's lifestyle, taste, and desires are my guide in designing a customized landscape. Other considerations are the architecture of the home, the climate, location, plant culture, foot traffic patterns, terrain, views from important points, maintenance, budget and design principals.

My design service has been used in creating landscape designs for municipal parks and for commercial and residential customers.
