Sweet Sophie, striking a pose.

Sweet Sophie, striking a pose.

Known for their plant savvy and architectural vignettes, Ross and Sylvia have created a bridge connecting their beautifully designed home and haut-chic nursery. Their extensive knowledge and unconventional design insight attracts visitors from across the USA and has been celebrated in national magazines.

Sylvia is a graduate from the Art institute of Chicago, a background which shows in everything she does, from building depth, texture and color, to seeking out the best plant for the right location.

Ross is the materials expert, blending together mastery and craftsmanship with a sense of whimsy and wonder. His elegant stonework is always finished to the highest level of professionalism, yet he can add an unusual twist with found and salvaged materials that he re-purposes for other roles in the landscape.

Drop into the nursery and be inspired by the colors and textures on display. And say Hi to Sophie, who should be basking in her modern dog-house whatever the season. She’s adorably cute – with her own ideas and opinions on how pets see the world of gardening – and she has her own fan-page too!
