small- In urban gardens our goal is to reclaim under-utilized area and be creative with the square footage available. We understand the challenges of limited space, difficult construction access and the desire for a small garden to respond to multiple needs.

medium- Suburban properties, community gardens and detached city homes provide opportunities to sculpt the land and plant larger drifts of perennials & grasses.

large- Estate gardens, commercial master plans and public parks typically offer a more expansive canvas to develop landscape themes and weave a variety of experiences.

XL- At every scale we bring bold vision and the expectation that our landscapes will perform. Clear ideas are coupled with effective presentation and an undivided attention to detail. Beyond single site projects, our research, writing, temporary installations, competition entries, product development and overall design thinking is centered on strengthening connections between people, plants and architecture.
