One of the area’s most creative, high-end designers, Jane has been designing and installing extraordinarily beautiful, outdoor living spaces for over 20 years.
Strong in both art and people skills, Jane is great at tuning in to her what her clients want to achieve and then bringing this to life in a seamless artistic vision that fits their personal aesthetic taste, their lifestyle, and their budget.
Jane started out as a Fine Artist but kept being drawn out of her studio to work with the rich multidimensional challenges of Landscape Design where she can basically create living paintings that are always growing more and more beautiful over time.
By blending art and nature to create distinctive environments that are both beautiful and comfortable, Jane hopes to bring us closer to the inspiring, regenerative influence of Nature that can provide a greater sense of peace, serenity, and balance in our day to day lives.

OUR TEAM OF ARTISANS :
It takes a great team to do outstanding work, so across her twenty years in the Landscape business, Jane has been collecting a team of independent artisan level, professionals that she can call on to do ‘top notch’ work and make sure her designs come together as they should with the fully coordinated sequences, high-quality craftsmanship and impeccable level of artistry that her clients have come to expect.
Clients are welcome to bring in other contractors who may have different skill sets or can give us competitive bids on various elements of the project. We are always happy for the opportunity to expand our team of artisans.
