Landscape and Garden Design
I offer several different design services ranging from one-hour consultations to quick-sketch garden designs to full landscape master plans.  I strive to create beautiful outdoor spaces that fit your lifestyle and are Colorado “green.”  All of my services are billed at an hourly rate, plus expenses, with a one-hour minimum. 

We start with a one hour consultation; sometimes this is all you need to move forward with your project. During the consultation we walk the site and discuss your wants and needs, concerns and preferences while reviewing the particulars of your property. I offer design and plant recommendations on the spot---it's like a brainstorming session but it's tempered with 30 years of professional experience! At the end of your consultation, if you’re interested, I will give you an estimate for a design package.  A design package includes 4 copies of your landscape design (a scaled map with existing and new features and plants), supplemental written instructions and specifications, a list of preferred landscape contractors (if you wish to hire some of the work done) and a list of additional resources.  I'm more than happy to break the design down into front or back yard, or even a special interest area.

Landscape and Garden Lectures
I am an experienced, enthusiastic public speaker and would love to address your audience! Some of my lectures focus on single design elements such as color or texture for the garden while others feature broader landscape design concepts and their application to real-world situations.  I strive to empower students with an art-based “visual vocabulary” and an understanding of how to combine landscape components for beautiful and personally meaningful results.  Regional sensitivity and gardens that are lifestyle appropriate are foundation topics for all lectures.

Lectures are presented in a Power-Point format and are packed full of beautiful, full screen photos of plants, gardens, and landscapes --- just like you see here on the blog!
