About Zone4 Landscapes Ltd.
I have a Landscape Design Certificate from the excellent program at the New York Botanical Garden. I also have a Master Gardener Certification from the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Greene County. I am very active in the landscape design community and continue to take a variety of classes and workshops to keep up with the industry and acquire new skills, as well as giving lectures and participating in special projects and workshops.
My passion for gardening and design has been developing for many years but it took a leap when I purchased an apartment in Manhattan specifically to gain root rights. I then proceeded to create a 1200 square foot roof garden where I spent almost all of my time away from the office. After exhausting the limitations of the roof garden I purchased a log home with 5 1/2 acres in Andes, NY in order to expand on this obsession. I finally decided to give up my lucrative career in Information Technology (and my roof garden) in Manhattan and move to my home in the Catskills and start a landscape design business. It has been a challenge but you couldn't drag me back kicking and screaming.
I am originally from Louisiana and did all my undergraduate and graduate work in music composition and piano performance with a focus on classical or serious music although I was a rock & roller in high school. When I moved to NYC in 1975 to pursue my musical career it took a strange twist and I ended up playing at CBGBs in a new wave rock band, not Carnegie Hall. I switched gears a couple of times and after a wild journey ended up at Ogilvy and Mather as the Chief Technology Officer of the Interactive Division. That is all behind me and now Zone4 is now starting its sixth season and I am loving it.
I believe that I have a good combination of skills, natural affinity, experience and knowledge to guide Zone4 to provide excellent solutions for clients in a cost-effective and enjoyable manner. I am totally jazzed by creating functional and beautiful solutions to living situations and the exterior environment provides a great canvas. My designs are very sensitive to environmental and ecological concerns including using indigenous plants and avoiding invasive species and unnecessary chemicals.
