Classic modern with a flair.  

While each project is unique, tailored to the personality of the homeowner and the site, my work tends toward clean lines and simple patterns characteristic of modern design. My designs adhere to the dominant sensibilities of classical design: strong axes, form, proportion, line, color, texture, and movement.


Timothy Lally Design seeks to work closely with the client to design and bring to fruition, innovative outdoor spaces that connect the client with nature. Timothy Lally Design has a holistic approach to landscape design, connecting client, architecture, and site. The garden is an extension of the home and the homeowner’s dreams, a vibrant living space ever changing throughout the seasons and throughout the years. The landscape design journey should be fun and exciting, filled with delights and surprises.
