His awareness of plant culture, and the way it can be used has been the basis of gardens the length and breadth of the US.
The stylings that are the hallmark of a Bryan Ramsey piece are an effortless mix of contemporary and rare plants, alongside garden structures like fences and follies that are by turns distinctive yet instantly classical in their appearance. His gardens are not like anything you have seen before, but they capture an ethos and atmosphere that is very familiar indeed. These are gardens as you remember them, as opposed to how they were.
A proud Virginian, Bryan’s background encompasses a dual degree in Landscape Design and Horticulture from the University of North Carolina, studies in Landscape Architecture with West Virginia University and Art and Architecture with Louisiana Tech University in Rome, Italy.
