Maripat looks at the big picture when offering landscape ideas. She thoughtfully considered the traditional style of our home, existing plants, sun exposure and from that offered design ideas that would prove successful within the conditions of our yard. She has creative, fun ideas and even offered suggestions to use some existing pots and statues in a more creative way. Maripat is a delight to work with!

I strive to bring my highest level of integrity to all my jobs, giving clients my best effort with quality work as well as consideration for their desires and goals.  Each association I have with clients begins with listening and incorporating their dreams into the final design solution. I believe the design plan is the foundation of all landscaping projects.



About Me

MY Story

My Irish heart and profound love of nature have and will always guide me as I explore the landscape from the perspective of an artist and a landscape designer.  I received my Degree in Fine Arts from St. Louis University. My skills in landscape design were developed by the English Garden Design College of Cothelstone, England, horticulture studies taken at Meramec Community College and the five years I served as a docent at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Early in my design career, the years I spent as a practical gardener with my husband and two sons gardening and landscaping our home here in St. Louis Country were invaluable. I feel I bring a wide variety of experiences to my designs and clients.
