Cheryl Corson Design L.L.C.

“The size of a garden has very little to do with its merit. It is the size of the owner's heart and brain and goodwill that...will either leave it at the usual monotonous dead-level, or raise it...towards that of a work of fine art.”

- Gertrude Jekyll

PROJECTS

Residential

Spaces for Kids

Public Spaces

Cheryl Corson works at various scales and teams with other talented designers, ecologists, artists, and craftspeople when appropriate, including architects and engineers.

Residential

Working with all kinds people and their homes allows us to try out new ideas and quickly see results. Collaboration between designer, client, and contractor is key, especially since a home garden is seen close-up every day. Each project looks different because it reflects the homeowner's needs and taste. But every project is functional,sustainable, and beautiful.

Multi-family

Cheryl Corson has worked with home owner's associations to create plans for residential complexes with outdated or difficult landscapes. Retrofitting existing communities to improve stormwater quality, reduce erosion and sedimentation, update outdoor lighting, reconsider signage and pedestrian safety, and give residents a more enjoyable outdoor experience is incremental work that is good for people, the environment, and property values. 

Spaces for Kids

Learning happens through play, especially for kids. Cheryl designs nature playspaces, outdoor classrooms, butterfly gardens, and other spaces that offer children chances to safely climb, balance, spin and slide - and learn to trust their developing bodies and minds. Cheryl is also a Certified Playground Safety Inspector who can audit or inspect your existing playground.

Public Spaces

Cheryl can help people, bicyclists, and cars safely move around a space. She creates versatile attractive areas for groups of various sizes to gather.  Cheryl includes appropriate stormwater best management practices in all projects, improving water quality and sometimes qualifying for grants or other tax benefits. She has worked on LEEP projects with design teams.
