Landscape designer Bill Phinney charmed clients into converting five rugged acres into a stunning coastal garden in Rockport, Maine.

While Bill spared as many trees as possible during construction (to preserve the property’s canopy), his extensive pruning opened up views. The garden’s woodland margins and rock-framed water features connect it to its setting. Bill says, “I call it marrying the landscape back to the land.” In this case, it’s a very happy marriage.
