I work on my own. You will find that all of your communications will be directly with me. I do not hand off your project to junior landscape architects. All of my years of experience will be at your disposal.
I am experienced in working with architects, engineers and individual home owners on a wide variety of project types and sizes.
I know the contractors in the area. I know who to trust and who can deliver.
I have long term relationships with City of Asheville and Buncombe County permit and planning staff.
I have experience working with and serving on Architectural Review Committees for mountain communities.
I have unique experience with difficult site design and I care about responsible land development.
My training as a landscape architect has taught me to look comprehensively a project.
I have been a member in good standing of the American Society of Landscape Architects for over 20 years.
I am a registered landscape architect in North Carolina and South Carolina.
I hold the LEED Green Associate certification and I believe in sustainability.

It is my belief —my conviction—that the unique and central task of the landscape architect is to help bring people – – -the things they do, the things they build, the way they live— into harmony with the living landscape— with the “want to be” of the land. It is as simple—-and compelling—as that.
