My Work

About Here By Design

Founded in 2014, Here By Design, LLC is a Maryland-based company that specializes in providing design solutions, planting schemes and installation oversight for gardens of all sizes. As owner and designer, my creative plans draw on the wide-ranging colors, textures and forms of both flowers and foliage to develop stylish and sustainable landscapes ranging from the classic to the contemporary.

Much of my work is inspired by Longwood Gardens and Winterthur Museum, two famous gardens located within miles of my childhood home. These magnificent properties taught me early on that great design is founded in personal story. I strive to create landscapes that are a reflection of my client’s views on nature and what role they’d like their garden to play in each family member’s life.

My projects include private estates in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC areas, as well as Washington, DC’s Kreeger Museum. Residential design rate is $225 per hour. Email me at for a free consultation.

I am a Master Gardener and member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD).
