Welcome to H. Beckwith Designs!

Everyone belongs in nature because nature belongs to everyone. Engaging with the world outside can be a subtle yet powerful experience for people of all ages and life stages. Outdoor spaces can provide opportunities to learn, gather and heal by connecting with the surrounding natural beauty —even in dense urban spaces. 

H. Beckwith Designs exists to curate these opportunities through thoughtful landscape designs that emphasize living in harmony with nature. The designs I create prioritize native plantings and sustainable landscaping practices that are responsive to environmental needs while creating outdoor living areas that will become your new favorite “room” in your home.

What is lifestyle landscaping?

 Outdoor living spaces are more than just patios and play equipment. They are places for gathering, learning, exploring, and relaxing. The goal of H. Beckwith Designs is to create landscaping that is beautiful, accessible and functional — a space that not only fits your lifestyle but enhances it.

My goal is for you to embrace all that nature has to offer. I create custom designs that meet your unique needs. Whether through learning and play with personalized garden classrooms , serenity spaces for meditation and healing, or outdoor living rooms for gathering and entertaining. Whatever your vision, the design created for you will go beyond everyday landscaping to rekindle a love for nature in a garden that grows for you and with you.

A lifestyle garden is a garden in which you can enjoy nature in your own backyard throughout your whole life, whether it’s playing, learning, growing, connecting, or exploring. 

Stay grounded, learn something new, and stay engaged with the outdoors surrounding you.  We all know that time in nature improves mental health, so help create a space that improves the ability to connect to yourself, to nature, and to others. Create a beautiful space full of life.

All nature is meant to make us think of paradise.  – Thomas Merton
