A landscaped garden surrounding a pool

Founding principal of Kathryn Herman Design in New Canaan, Kathryn Herman brings a strong horticultural background and intense interest in architecture to the international residential and commercial work that has garnered her firm recent Arthur Ross, Palladio, Stanford White, and Connecticut ASLA awards. Her own historic garden—reflecting her passion for classic British landscapes, with thematic plantings and a 114-foot-long garden room packed with perennials and backed by mature trees—has been included on the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days and featured in Architectural Digest. In 2012, Herman was elected into the New England Design Hall of Fame for her contributions to landscape design.
