Ecologically-based design works with nature to create beautiful, healthy landscapes. 

I help clients create spaces for wildlife to live and people to enjoy. The outcome is a living landscape with four season interest that is stunning and resilient. 

Landscape Consultation

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.

Landscape Education

“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.  

My primary goal is to teach others how to create sustainable, resilient landscapes that support a large diversity of wildlife.

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.
