Julie Moir Messervy’s vision for composing landscapes of beauty and meaning is furthering the evolution of landscape design and changing the way people create and enjoy their outdoor surroundings. Julie is the principal designer of JMMDS, a landscape architecture and design firm in Saxtons River, Vt., creators of parks and residential gardens around the country. Her best-known work, the three-acre Toronto Music Garden, was designed in collaboration with noted cellist Yo-Yo Ma and received the Leonardo da Vinci Award for innovation and creativity.


She is a distinguished lecturer and the author of eight books on landscape design, including Landscaping Ideas That Work; Home Outside: Creating the Landscape You Love; and Outside the Not So Big House with Sarah Susanka. She has written numerous articles, including the popular long-running “Inspired Design” column for Fine Gardening magazine, and gives lectures and workshops around North America.


Julie has a mission to use digital technologies to bring great design to anyone, anywhere. She created the Home Outside® online design service and Home Outside® Palette landscape design app to do just that. For more information, please visit or
