Greatest Benefit of Being Involved with APLD:

I am President of APLD in 2014 and am committed to the longevity of the association as well as the landscape design profession. I am a dedicated APLD volunteer and have served on the national and state level almost from the first day I joined. Being a member of APLD has allowed me to participate in a large network of talented and dedicated landscape designers. It has given me access to people and places that I might not have had otherwise.

About Me:

My boutique design practice is based in the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area and specializes in residential projects. I infuse classic design priciples and artisnal details in each project.. I am passionate about design and gardens and translate my love of gardens, travel, fashion and art into the very personal spaces I design. No two projects are ever the same and I work collaboratively with my clients so that when I walk away it's truely their outdoor space.




Within the context of each project I design and specify everthing. From plants to stone to furniture to accessories, I'm concerned with every detail. I work closely with my clients to insure that they get exactly what they want within their budgetary guidelines.




I write for Garden Design and I blog as Miss R on my landscape design blog Miss Rumphius' RulesAdditionally, I teach landscape design courses at the New York Botanical Gardens and Bergen Community College.
