For three decades my team and I have been helping people design their home landscapes. We’ve written books and other educational content, created a property layout app, and designed countless gardens and property plans around the country and beyond.

Whatever you’re looking for—books, tips & inspiration, an app to help you design it yourself, phone consultations, ready-made designs and plant collections, or design services (a specific project or the whole property)—we hope you’ll find it here. If you don’t see the kind of assistance you’re looking for, drop us a line. We’re always seeking new ways to help people get a landscape they’ll love.
