Christopher Tinkham, owner and principal, holds a bachelor's degree from Wesleyan University in Connecticut and is a 1998 graduate of the Radcliffe Seminars graduate program in Landscape Design where he was taught by Landscape Architects, Nurserymen, Horticultural experts and Landscape Historians. He has also been working as a landscape contractor since 1994. This combination of experience and education allows him to create landscapes that are both artistic and functional, designed with the specific style and needs of each individual client in mind.
The bones of a garden are the main structural features that define its spaces. Think of them as the skeleton or framework upon which the landscape grows. Bones can include walls, fences, trees, pathways, arbors, patios, hedges, etc. Beginning with the bones, we advise our clients on the layout of their space to maximize its functionality. When the layout is finished, we help select the materials which will define the space's feel, until we have created something harmonious and beautiful. As a result of this process, each design comes out as unique as the customer for whom it was designed.
Please browse our portfolio of photos of selected jobs. Feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail for more information about designing and building a beautiful outdoor space for you. Make sure to click on the "Featured Project" in the Before and After section to see a complete landscape design and installation, from paper to finished product, with rock walls, stone paths, a water feature, and beautiful trees, shrubs and perennials.
As you look through the pictures in our portfolio, ask yourself if these spaces look truly individualistic. All of these landscapes were designed and built within the past few years, and are available for visitation with advanced notice. We like to work on whole landscapes, but are happy to work on small projects or individual pieces of a landscape such as a wall, or just prepare a design and leave the heavy lifting to you.
Thank you for your interest,
Owner, Designer, Foreman.
