Private Nature Preserve

Fairfield County, CT

This private estate needed an ecological landscape renovation to connect surrounding habitats into a biodiverse ecosystem corridor.

GJLD created a Landscape Design Master Plan for numerous microclimates on the property, serving a multitude of design functions.

These included: perimeter screening, woodland understories, sunny meadow areas, and technical rain gardens. The result is a restored estate that looks, feels, and functions like a private nature preserve.



  • Designed faux-meadow pollinator gardens
  • Native pool landscaping
  • Woodland perimeter border with stroll paths
Private Nature Preserve – Master Design Plan

In the words of the client:

Jay and his team created the most beautiful pollinator pathway garden design for our 5 acre property that has brought our property to life! Jay is a wealth of knowledge and has educated us on the value of organic practices and diversification of native species to best support the ecosystem. It has been a rich and FUN experience working with Jay and his team! They are professional, timely, and deeply connected to their mission of creating native landscapes. I highly recommend working with Jay and is team.”
