  Julie Moir Messervy

Julie Moir Messervy is a noted landscape and garden designer, lecturer and principal of Julie Moir Messervy and Associates in Saxtons River, Vermont. With more than two decades of experience, Ms. Messervy has emerged as a leader of a movement in which landscape design is as much a personal journey as it is about leaving a unique imprint upon the earth. She has inspired a new generation of landscape designers, homeowners and others to create soulful oases that reflect an inward vision deeply rooted in outdoor archetypes, childhood imagination and aesthetic impulses.

A celebrated author, Ms. Messervy's first book, Contemplative Gardens (1990), was called one of the ten best garden books of the year by The New York Times. Her second book, The Inward Garden (1995), won the Garden Writers Association of America Gold Medal in 1996. Her third book, The Magic Land, was described as "a companion for inspired daydreaming" by Carol Stocker of The Boston Globe. A regular columnist for Fine Gardening magazine, Ms. Messervy's projects include the Toronto Music Garden which she designed in collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. She trained with the eminent Japanese garden master Kinsaku Nakane, and earned her Master of Architecture and Master in City Planning degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Julie Moir Messervy will present her new book, Outside the Not So Big House: Creating the Landscape of Home, published this month (February) by Taunton Press for the CLSC program. The book is co-written with architect and designer Sarah Susanka, the 10:45 a.m. lecturer earlier in the day. James van Sweden, Tuesday morning’s speaker and fellow of the American Society of Landscape Architects writes, “Sarah Susanka and Julie Moir Messervy's clearly written text offers practical advice for designing indoor-outdoor spaces that respond to modern lifestyles. They reveal secrets for achieving the ideal combination of architecture and nature in the home and in the garden.”

Ms. Messervy will then lecture for the Department of Religion on Friday, focusing on a contemplative and inward-looking design philosophy that is her hallmark.
