At Donald Pell Gardens we are driven to share our passion to reveal beauty… We look to nature to inspire remarkable and immersive gardens that evoke the drama of a region’s landscape.
At Donald Pell Gardens our inspiration is derived from the New American Garden style which looks to connect gardens with the greater regional landscape. Our designs mirror Impressionistic examples of the American meadow and Eastern Forest. With great reverence for the wild garden, the American landscape informs our decisions about processes and beauty.
In partnering with clients we help them to realize value from a well planned garden utilizing sympathetic design as a way to restore harmony. Our designs consider function and circulation within space to achieve a sensuous experience with a composition that celebrates the evolving seasons.
We create immediate value, engineered through the seamless integration of space, soils and vegetation. External resources are used minimally in plantings by selecting appropriate materials that thrive on the given site. Bold masses of perennials bring powerful seasonal aesthetic along with minimal maintenance. Structural features are integrated and crafted with timeless materials.
With over 50 years combined experience, our offerings include landscape design and consultation, garden maintenance and management, agronomy, arboriculture, permaculture, masonry, and carpentry.
