Our gardens tell many beautiful, elegant and charming stories. We decided long ago when we opened our doors that we were about quality, not quantity. The many craftspeople we work with day in and day out and the dialogue we share is one big part of the magic. Drawing from our extensive travels over a lifetime and remarkable 30 years of experience in designing and building gardens of all scales and complexity is another big part of the vision we bring to the table. Then, comes the regenerative and healing component, our gardens are serene, soft, balanced, beautiful environments composing the space immediately beyond the walls of the house and integrating the house into the garden.
The reknown English garden designer, plantswoman and artist, Gertrude Jekyll said, ‘it is just in the way it is done that lies the whole difference between commonplace gardening and gardening that may rightly claim to rank as a fine art. Given the same space of ground and the same material, they may either be fashioned into a dream of beauty, a place of perfect rest and refreshment of mind and body--a series of soul satisfying pictures--a treasure of well-set jewels; or they may be so misused that everything is jarring and displeasing. To learn how to perceive the difference and how to do right is to apprehend gardening as a fine art.’
