Since I was very young I’ve always been drawn to nature. Over the years I found myself diving into every curiosity I had about the natural world. All of my fondest memories were spent outdoors.
I came to appreciate my ability to tame a landscape while keeping it balanced and harmonious by using the 4 basic elements.
Any great gardener will tell you a truly harmonious garden contains 4 Elements that not only soothe the eye, but the soul as well. Water, Earth, Wind, & Fire are the pillars of a garden space that is meant to be used by both man and nature.
I incorporate each element into all of my designs.
A garden is one of the oldest constructs of civilization. Throughout history a garden has represented peace and harmony. For me landscape harmony is a deep passion.
I believe everyone is born with a gift, for me there is no greater peace than mastering the harmony of a landscape. Bending and wielding it to my design. Shaping it for the purpose of balance and beauty. And seeing the joy it brings to good people. People who understand that this place I created for them is a little piece of paradise, designed just for them.
Hi, my name is James. I am not a landscape designer – I am a landscape harmonist.
