Aboutbullet From an early age growing up in London, I had a fascination and delight with the gardens in London's parks and estate houses. After earning a B.A. in Geography from Oxford University, I apprenticed as a gardener in Kensington Gardens, London. When I returned to the States, I went on to earn a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.

After graduation I worked in the Office of Dan Kiley, Charlotte, Vermont. I opened my own office in 1992 and moved my practice to South Strafford in 2006.

Most recently, I continued my education with a Community Sustainability workshop at Tufts University, led by Sarah James and Torjorn Lahti of the Natural Step.

"We have had many wonderful landscape experiences with Janet Cavanagh over the past ten years. We asked her to design low maintenance grounds for a new houise we built in 2001. The results of the design, ten years later, just get better and better. Looking out our windows is a treat."
