Because he believes that each garden should be as original as its owner, Mr. Bochenek has developed a unique talent of working with people to make their ideas blossom. He serves as a facilitator for clients’ natural creativity, allowing them to experience the fullness of their intuition and enjoy its result in the realized design.stone20m2.jpg

It’s not enough that a garden be merely beautiful…. it must also inspire a sense of awe while cultivating a profound inner quiet.

It is the role of the landscape architect to consider the interface between the structure and the surrounding land while incorporating the owner’s unique version of paradise.

Peter Bochenek’s passion for the art of arranging outdoor space comes as second nature. “My father had an oriental garden,” he says, “and from the time I was four or five I loved to help him bring up stones from the riverbed behind our home and carefully place them in the backyard.” Although the foundation for his designs lies mainly in Far East philosophy, he
is also inspired by gardens he has studied in Europe, and by local conditions. At their heart, his creations have a natural appeal and fit seamlessly into their surroundings.

The design process by Peter Bochenek and Associates combines an artist’s sense of balance, scale, proportion, rhythm, color, and punctuation with the landscape architect’s technical knowledge. To extend the value of our client’s investment and ensure strict quality control over the execution of the design, we offer a comprehensive service which includes serving as your “agent” during the construction process.
