Seeking to work with, rather than for clients, Karen sees herself as the intermediary in an ongoing dialogue between the individual and their environment. Her principal concern is to understand the client's desires and the nature of the landscape, with the ultimate goal of creating a harmonious connection between the two.

Enriched by travel, Karen's background in textiles and interior design brings dimension to her perspective on gardening and landscape design. Her envisioning goes beyond immediate visual impact, to imagining the complete experience of garden spaces, resplendent with order and delight.
