"The idea is not to copy nature, but to give a feeling of nature."

- Piet Oudolf

Chris Matava

Growing up on the coast of Maine, I spent hours roaming the woods, coves and rocky beaches near our home and fell in love with the natural world. My designs take inspiration from the sites themselves: the topography, existing vegetation, natural features and the house or buildings with which they are associated. I leverage my knowledge of plant material, design, mastery of construction and attention to detail to bring landscapes to life. From the planning and design stage through construction and installation administration, I specialize in transforming sites into beautiful and inspiring spaces.
