  'I am passionate about landscape architecture and design--the interaction of people within spaces, how that space is defined, and how the impacts of materials, including plants affect a person's use of a space and their well-being.  My goal in professional practice is to inspire clients to get outside and enjoy nature through the design of their landscape by creating sustainable, beautiful and functional spaces that not only meet their needs but exceed their expectations.' - Amy



WHAT IS LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE?

 Landscape Architecture is the art and science of designing public and private spaces which define the environmental, social and aesthetic relationships people (and other users) have with their environment.    Landscape architecture incorporates aspects of botany, arboriculture and horticulture, fine arts, architecture and industrial design, geology and the earth sciences including soil sciences, water management, environmental psychology, geography and ecology.
