About Spring Lake Garden Design Incorporated

Gardens designed and planted by principal owners Ian Gribble and Catharine Cooke have transformed many properties in the Connecticut and New York areas into landscapes of quiet charm and beauty. Their approach of letting the land reveal its own beauty allows the pair's natural creativity to evolve into beautiful landscape designs. Ian, the horticulturist, pays attention to existing soil and light conditions and is committed to the concept of "right plant in the right place." Catharine is always looking at shapes, the play of light and shadow, color, and the relationship of objects -- always striving to stay true to the "genius of a place" -- its history, architecture, and inhabitants.
