Stephen is an award-winning Landscape Designer, Educator and thought leader who believes in the transformational nature of good design.  Stephen considers the role of design is to respond to the world around us and enhance our ability to lead a purposeful life.

With more than 30 years of experience designing gardens of all sizes in Europe, the UK, and Australia, Stephen has developed a unique collaborative process with clients.  The outcome is a garden that is a timeless expression of the home and the personality and vision of the current owners, a place where form and function are perfectly blended.

Stephen firmly believes that fashion trends should never dictate your landscape design.  There is a reason for every element, whether functional or aesthetic, resulting in a timeless garden that will age gracefully with the home.
