"The summer after I graduated from the University of Michigan, I visited Westcroft Gardens with my late father and source of inspiration, Francis Xavier Cullen. We ended our visit by a small reflecting pool, next to which was a memorial stone with four words on it—the four words that would become my company motto: “God makes; man shapes.”

It struck me then that at the heart of gardening there is always a collaborative effort. I take what God has created—be it soil, stone, plant, or water—and I try to weave together both nature and inspiration until I feel the desired effect has been achieved."
