Ecologically-based design works with nature to create beautiful, healthy landscapes.
I create a space for wildlife to live and people to enjoy. The outcome is a living landscape with four season interest that is stunning and resilient.
Are you interested in organic landscape practices? I consult with towns, businesses and individual homeowners on plant selection and layout design to maximize four-season aesthetics while embracing eco-friendly practices.
“Pretty” is just one function of any landscape. Our landscapes can be a source of environmental change. Learn to collaborate with nature in your landscape designs.
I am passionate about providing all homeowners, towns, and business with the information they need to make sustainable landscaping choices.
I create and manage landscapes for people and wildlife through design, management, and education.

Marie’s Newest Collaboration
In 2020, I researched and authored a paper for the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD), assessing the environmental impact of the default container type in the horticultural industry: plastic plant pots. The discovery that billions (98%), are thrown into landfills regardless of efforts to dispose of them responsibly has resulted in an international initiative to use alternative material.
