Welcome to 

Pentimento Gardens!

Gardens grow, Gardens change. They change with the season, soft and pastel in the spring, vibrant and bright over the summer, a palette of yellows and oranges in the autumn and austere  over the winter. They also evolve over time, adapting to site, sun and water. 

We, personally, evolve emotionally, spiritually and intellectually over time. Just as in our gardens, our lives are richer for that. 


At Pentimento Gardens, we work with clients  and their unique site to create a design that pleases the client’s vision while contributing to the ecology of the site. This collaboration  results in a garden design both pleasing to the senses and soul while harmonizing with the local ecosystem.



"Old paint on canvas, as it ages, sometimes becomes transparent. When that happens it is possible, in some pictures, to see the original  lines: a tree will show through a woman's dress, a child makes way for a dog, a large boat is no longer on an open sea. That is called pentimento because the painter "repented," changed his mind. 


Perhaps it would be as well to say the old conception, replaced by a later choice, is a way of seeing and then seeing again. That is all I mean about the people in this book. The paint has aged now and I wanted to see what was there for once, what is there for now." 


Pentimento ~ Lillian Hellman
