As a landscape architect I have been creating imaginative and sustainable landscapes and gardens for over twenty years. My design experience ranges from independent commissions for residential, commercial and corporate clients, to working for some of the preeminent landscape architecture and environmental engineering firms in New England. Working at these firms I was responsible for helping take various size residential, institutional, public, and commercial projects from initial design, through the estimating and bidding process, to overseeing finish construction. Today, as principal of Sallie Hill Design, LLC I continue to benefit from having collaborated with some of the area’s finest architects, engineers, contractors, suppliers and nurseries; contacts and relationships that I still rely on. I am registered and licensed as a landscape architect in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (RLA) and a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), and the Boston Society of Landscape Architects (BSLA). I received a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Virginia and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Utah.
Sallie Hill Design, LLC was founded on the principal of understanding a client’s objectives and vision, acknowledging how each site presents unique characteristics, and combining both to create beautiful, distinctive and functional outdoor spaces. The firm’s philosophy is that good design can celebrate a property’s unique features, unify discordant site elements, and transform the landscape to both engage the user and enhance the landscape.
Each project presents a unique opportunity to create something special, that fits the requirements of the specific property and a client's budget. Collaboration and regular communication with clients are a hallmark of my work and for me is key to the design process. For the past three years I've been recognized by Houzz.com, the leading online platform for home remodeling and design, as a recipient of a "Best of Houzz 2016, 2015 and 2014 award for Customer Satisfaction" . "Over 35 million monthly unique users rated top-rated home building, remodeling and design professionals in the United States and around the world.

This award acknowledges the importance I place on attention to detail and making the extra effort to assure a project is completed to a clients’, and my, satisfaction.
