Throughout her long career as a garden and landscape designer, author, and presenter Julie Moir Messervy has always sought to create landscapes that resonate with beauty and meaning. Those very qualities made her and her team a great fit to design for the newest garden at Long Hill. In this talk, she shares the principles and processes she lives by for visioning, designing, and building personal and private landscapes. Using her firm’s projects as case studies, including Long Hill, she interweaves personal stories with design theory and perspectives, as well as before-and-afters and tips that apply to creating a beautiful garden and living a joyful life. Among the topics Julie will touch on are the soul of the designer, human longing and fulfillment, spatial archetypes, journey-making and joyful process.
Julie Moir Messervy is the principal designer of JMMDS, a landscape architecture and design firm in Saxtons River, Vermont, creators of public and private gardens around the country. Her best-known work, the three-acre Toronto Music Garden, was designed in collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma and received the Leonardo da Vinci Award for innovation and creativity. She is the author of nine books on landscape design and the creator of the Home Outside® landscape design app and online design service.
