North River Landscape


Business Hours
By appointment.

Call North River Landscape Design and Consulting to create landscapes that are beautiful and fit your site. I am a problem solver and idea person.  Creative.  It is really important that your resulting landscape meets both your wishes and your needs, having paid attention to the site and the neighborhood.

What’s in it for you?

  • I work for you and am associated with really good contractors who can install your project.
  • Your ideas and favorite plants are incorporated into the design.
  • Very often we co-create the design, using your information and knowledge and mine to get a plan that will be just what you want.
  • My design and consultation work is reasonably priced.
  • You may be your own contractor and install the plantings yourself.

I am a freelance designer who has worked in the landscape industry for about 30 years, the most recent four years have been here in Bradenton and Manatee County.  Before moving here, I was a registered Landscape Architect with my own design studio. I have always had a horticultural interest, so I enjoy learning about plant varieties and where they grow.  There is such a phenomenal variety of exotic plant choices here, and, if that isn’t enough, look to the natives, which will thrive in the correct environment. I enjoy the challenge of choosing plants in the right hardiness zone, soil, and pH.

But landscaping is more than just plants – pergolas, playsets, patios with fire pits and pools (oh, my!).

These additions are what give your landscape life and allow you to get more enjoyment out of your outdoor space.

Because I work independently, you may either choose to install the landscape yourself or work with one of my associate contractor(s). I have found good, reliable, reasonably priced contractors to handle both landscape and maintenance.  I also have several excellent general contractors for the carpentry and electricity needed for lighting, pools and pool cages, and the like.

Whether your project is a front foundation re-do, a complete overhaul, or starting fresh, I would love to be involved in the planning of your landscape.
