With my career beginning on all fours planting, pruning and weeding gardens in Richmond, White Rock and Vancouver, BC, and continuing with my education at Kwantlen College in Langley, BC, my design style is certainly influenced by the lush gardens, ocean vistas and natural mountain stone of British Columbia’s southern coast. However, as a landscape designer, my job is to understand my clients’ goals and desires first, then take the time to truly explore their unique style and bring it all together to deliver a functional, fun and inspiring space that is their very own to enjoy and grow with.
I remember the first time I drove Highway 99 along the Oregon coastline: I couldn’t believe how with every turn, a new vista would leave me in awe of the beauty and the raw power of the ocean waves crashing against rocky outcroppings. Sumac trees dangling over cliff edges to my right and seemingly mile-high Redwoods standing with Sword ferns at their feet to my left. A garden design should inspire its inhabitants and guests just the same – every turn should leave the viewer wanting a little more, leaving him/her to question what might be around that next corner.
