designer love: miranda brooks landscape design

I never thought I’d be pullling weeds from my lawn in the dead of winter, but with it vacillating between icy, freezing temps and 75 degrees every other day, that’s exactly what I’ve been doing as of late. I don’t normally mind the upkeep, but with our bermuda grass brown and crunchy, I can’t help but long for spring and summer when everything is lush and emerald green around these parts!  It’s especially got me thinking of New York-based landscape designer Miranda Brooks and her stunning portfolio!  I love how she doesn’t try to over plant or over style – instead, she lets nature take the lead with perrenial beds and borders, boxwoods and amazing hedges.  I can’t wait for consistently warmer weather to get my planting on!  Here are some of my favorites from her portfolio:

And I especially LOVE her work at the Connecticut home of architect Daniel Romualdez, recently featured in Vogue:
