Design Style

Whether to have space as a solitude retreat or to host an occasion, outdoor living is the environment you and your family can enjoy for many years. By the influence of landscape principles and beautiful elements, your yard will be an amazing functional retreat. I am eager to discover your inspiration, unique style, and ideas, to bring your desired outdoor home to life.

Design Philosophy

If you’re looking to revive your yard or simply look for new landscape ideas, I take care of your landscaping wants, needs, and interests at heart. As time evolves, your lifestyle does too. Your yard will need to function along with those changing times. A mindful approach to design is the way to create the curb appeal your property needs, by having that outdoor space to always admire and appreciate using.


For many years I lived on an acreage just outside of Edmonton. Most of my time at home was spent outside riding horses, driving the tractor, or tending vegetable and small perennial gardens. I wanted to continue my outdoor life and inspire others to be surrounded by nature and share with them the enjoyment an outdoor environment can bring.

As a native Albertan, my familiarity was with the Oil and Gas Industry. My history as a piping designer developed my attention to detail and the understanding of spatial 3D concepts. With my eagerness to get back to a natural lifestyle, I searched for a way to find new work that would help others while getting back to the outdoors.

My motivation to create beautiful yards came from volunteering with the Habitat for Humanity. The satisfaction of many attractive landscapes was the reward I cherished from the dedication and hard work it took to install them. My interest to continue understanding residential landscapes brought me to discover the Landscape Architectural Technology program at NAIT.

During the summer after my first year in the LAT program at NAIT, my position as a Landscape Inspector for the City of Edmonton gave me a chance to see many ideas of different residential and small commercial landscape designs. This inspired me to pursue a position where I can dedicate my future to residential landscape design and to bring my outdoor designing passion to you.
