"Architecture dominates modern residential landscapes and the relationship of the land to the buildings on it demands order. Once a solid foundation is established, the landscape can be planted in a more naturalistic manner." A careful development of the relationship between the land and buildings upon it allow for an opportunity to connect with nature, a calm connection that begins to shift the way one experiences daily life. Much like a carefully curated interior, the goal is to design garden spaces that reflect their inhabitants through expert execution.
RKGD has an offices in New York and Massachusetts but we go wherever a garden needs to be grown.
