To me, there is no flower more beautiful than the Rose. It is as demanding, as it is beautiful. I have spent my career developing my knowledge of rose cultivation and care. I work with my clients to design their dream rose gardens and bring them to life. Cape Cod is a unique and special environment to work with roses. It can produce incredible outcomes if done properly.
David Austin Rose Gardens
My favorite roses are the David Austin roses. In 2019, I had the opportunity to travel to and experience the David Austin Rose Gardens in Albrighton, England. David Austin roses are an English based rose breeder that produce over 900 hybrids. Each hybrid is developed for specific characteristics including fragrance, disease resistance, repeat bloom, color, size and charm. I am able to source these special roses and make them a part of your gardens.
English Garden Design and Installation
To understand English Garden design, it’s important to know its beginnings. The English garden was developed in the 18th century as a revolt to the architectural gardens which were based on rectilinear patterns and unnatural shaping of trees and shrubs. The English Garden is more flowing and full. Plant selection is key so they can work together as companions in their design space. English gardens are layered and therefore attention in the early design phase is critical.
