Garden Design in Scarsdale New York

Ah…fall is here! This is a great time to improve your landscape and kick up the curb appeal of your property!

My spirits are always lifted when I return home to find my beautiful landscape shining ! My mood is elevated by the joy of seeing the next flowering perennial display or the next new fragrance waking up my senses!

Change is powerful! Change is good and stimulating! Change is healthy!

The gift of changing seasons here in New York is amazing!

Early fall is full of surprises in terms of continuous perennial bloom as a continuation of summers bounty. Mid fall we can hardly compete with Mother Nature for color. By the way, do you know why Mother Nature is Mother Nature not Father Nature?, because She can never be wrong! We often take advantage of the rich, vibrant reds and oranges of our fall foliage plants to create a stunning backdrop for our ever interesting landscape. Don’t forget the only opportunity to increase your early spring floral display with bulbs will soon be here!

Think of doing something fresh and different with your landscape. Instead of a monotonous progression of evergreens from the entrance to the border screen to the foundation create something different, interesting…more fun!


Landscape and garden design need not be complicated and you can alway add onto it, providing you allowed for it in your planning and design.

Use flowering shrubs or ornamental grasses (low maintenance, doesn’t need pruning) as a hedge. Install a free form curvilinear path or walkway which will add character to the landscape and set you apart from the more sterile, boring landscape you might see in your neighborhood.

Does your landscape reflect your taste and culture as your interior design does? See our portfolio on our web site or our Houzz profile
