Rue Sherwood Landscape Design

A combination of grasses, perennials, shrubs and trees provide low maintenance, layered plantings that connect the house to the landscape and define outdoor spaces for a new home overlooking the salt marsh.  A retaining wall and bank planting transform a steep slope edging the driveway.

"We hired Rue to design all of the landscaping for our new home upon the completion of construction. She was phenomenal to work with! Rue was extremely knowledgable and diligent. Her work ethic and standards for professionalism far exceeded my expectations." katiehertz
