Hudson Garden Studio is an ecologically-minded landscape gardening firm and specialty nursery. We design and install beautiful, transformative, ecologically robust gardens. We believe the garden is a place for the hum of family activity, for contemplation, and a jumping off point for connection into the larger landscapes all around us. We are committed to sustainable design for the stewardship of our shared environment.

Located in the Hudson Highlands, we work throughout the Hudson Valley, the Five Boroughs and Eastern Long Island.
