Very fortunately, down the street from our house on Shelter Island is the home of the talented garden designer Martha Baker. Martha is a force of style in nature. She is funny, chic, glamorous, beautiful, creative, humble and TALL all at the same time. Martha does all kinds of residential projects, but generally her work has been focused on creating outdoor environments for large -scale residential estates in the US and abroad, with many high profile clients and books to her name. Her home and garden is a work of art, with each corner casually, yet artfully composed and seemingly magazine -ready. Her landscape has so much dimension to it that you really need days to absorb it all. Martha was kind enough to spend some time with me, which I have been dying to do for the longest time, both to learn from an expert in the field and also to try to document some of the highlights. With my 'island brain' and her impeccable standards as a respected designer in the field, I can only hope I am doing her justice here. You can see more here at Martha Baker Landscape Design.
