Landscape design is both an art and a science, and is truly one our favorite aspects of what we get to do each day. It allows us to use our creativity and extensive horticultural knowledge to turn dreams into realities.

Roxy believes in creating landscape designs that are environmentally friendly and ecologically sound, the goal is to not just make gardens that are beautiful to look at, but also fun to interact with. It’s about developing human-nature relationships.
“My designs are about creating gardens that are enticing to explore and easy to interact with”
