Since starting North Land Design in 1989, Claudia has designed a diverse range of projects. She feels strongly about listening to her clients and creating designs to fit their needs. Yet her greatest pleasure is finding the overlooked natural beauties on a client’s property that can be shared and appreciated. By making greater use of these native plants, landscapes become more natural and sustainable.
Claudia teaches design in the Master Gardener program, sponsored by the University of New Hampshire County Extension Program. She has spoken at the annual UNH Master Gardener symposium, presented at local garden clubs, and has judged the New England Spring Flower Show in Boston.
After many years as a commercial actress, Claudia began her second career with a graduate certificate in the Landscape Seminars program at Radcliffe College, where she assisted in the design of the Flatley Corporate Headquarters in Boston and continued on to employment at Mahoney’s Rocky Ledge Nursery in Winchester, Massachusetts.
