About the Company
Your home is a place to relax after a long day’s work, to play with the family, or to enjoy an evening dinner with friends on the patio. At Blue Heron Landscape Design, we create places that nurture the soul, relax the mind, and feed the spirit. Places that enhance your lifestyle. From bird and butterfly gardens to outdoor kitchens, it’s about you and how you spend your leisure time. By accentuating your home’s aesthetics, building on a sense of place, and getting to know you, we create gardens that allow you, to be you.
We also take great care to provide a safe environment for you and your loved ones, using sustainable design principles and natural and organic materials, from the beginning of construction through ongoing stewardship.
Scott Hokunson, owner and designer, has been creating landscapes and gardens since 1981 and brings a wealth of experience and expertise to each project. A proponent of natural and sustainable principles, he works closely with his clients to create elegant outdoor living spaces. Also a garden writer, whose work has been featured in Fine Gardening Magazine, Connecticut Gardener Magazine, and The Designer, Scott writes the company blog Garden Sketches, and is a founding member of the international garden design blog Garden Designers Roundtable. He also lectures to garden clubs and other interested organizations on topics such as garden design, plants, and gardening. In 2011, Scott was an adviser to a class on Sustainable Landscape Design at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. From 2009 – 2012, he was co-host, designer, and producer of the TV show The Ultimate Backyard Makeover on Fox 61 in Hartford, CT, and he served on the board of the Connecticut Chapter of The Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLDCT) from 2013 to 2014.
I look forward to working with you and helping you to create the garden of your dreams!
