History and Experience
Scott Hokunson, the principal behind Blue Heron Landscape Design, got his start in the Horticultural Industry in 1981, working for a small but very talented wholesale nursery and landscape company in the Farmington Valley. After finishing college the decision was made to start his own company, and the seeds of Blue Heron Landscape Design were sown. That business, known as Hokunson Landscape & Design, designed, installed and maintained landscapes throughout North Central Connecticut for 13 years. In 1998 Scott’s path changed when he accepted an offer to work in the building industry. This eventually led to a position with a very respectable design/build kitchen and bath company. All the while Scott maintained contact with the Horticultural world, by attending yearly seminars, trade shows and occasionally designing and installing gardens. During the summer of 2006 that passion that had never left eventually led him back to create Blue Heron Landscape Design.
Blue Heron Landscape Design provides sustainable garden design and restoration. Based in the Farmington Valley, the company uses sustainable practices when designing and planting all types of gardens and landscaping. Scott Hokunson, founder of Blue Heron Landscape Design, has been involved in the horticultural Industry in 1981, founding Blue Heron in 2006. The company uses ecologically friendly materials, and native or non-invasive plants that bring out the natural beauty of their customers’ properties. They serve clients throughout Northern Connecticut and Central Massachusetts.
Over the many years, and through the many experiences I have had in the Horticultural Industry, I have come to realize that this is my passion. I have come to respect the land and all that nature has taught me. The commitment I now bring to Blue Heron Landscape Design is one of sustainability, and of ecological responsibility. Our focus is to provide our clients with gardens that will enhance their properties and grow with them as they travel the paths of their lives.
All the best to you,
