Your happiness
is my goal!

In the project above, my clients wanted to see some options for their entrance. After seeing the first three concepts, my clients wanted to see two more variations on the second concept. After those, they wanted one more option — no problem. Finally, we have a winner!

These are the types of situations where my creative problem-solving skill shines. With my artistic background, I can create renderings that help my clients understand what their outdoor spaces could look like before they are built. 

You want to love your outdoor spaces, but you don't know where to start. That's where I come in. I bring my creative vision and vast landscape knowledge together to create a customized outdoor space for you and your family. If you'd like to have me come brainstorm to give you new ideas and a new perspective, give me a call at 610-896-8444.

"We asked Gwen to design a private oasis with a patio for entertaining and dining. I think the thing that impressed us the most was the whole design process with three unique and completely different concepts (I mean really, other than on TV who does that???) and the way in which she presented them. With the 3-D animation, it felt like we were physically in the space. Very cool to say the least. The process has been fun, educational and far exceeded our expectations."

The Harvest Moon

In sky lore, the Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumn equinox. This year it will be on September 16-17 and it will be slightly bigger-than-average! That’s because this full moon is near perigee, the closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit (perigee is on Sunday.)
The Harvest Moon is named because the shorter-than-usual lag time between moonrises at this time of year means no long period of darkness between sunset and moonrise for days in succession. In the days before tractor lights, the lamp of the Harvest Moon helped farmers to gather their crops. As the sun’s light faded in the west, the moon would soon rise in the east to illuminate the fields throughout the night.
Look for the Harvest Moon just after sunset near the horizon when it will appear its largest and brightest. But this is a trick of your eyes, called the Moon Illusion. All full moons near the horizon appear this way.
