At CTLD a well-designed landscape combines clearly defined shapes with softer vegetation to create spaces that are visually captivating and emotionally engaging.  We deeply understand the significance of "genius loci" or the essence of a place, and we weave this sentiment into every thoughtful composition.  We prioritize the use of native and climate-appropriate plant species that can thrive in local conditions.  By embracing sustainable practices, we aim to design landscapes that enrich lives, promote environmental stewardship, and provide year-round proximity to nature.  


Christine Tullius became interested in landscape design when she was living in Berlin, Germany.  During her 10 year stay, she witnessed the transformation of a city where landscape design played a critical role in resolving functional and spatial problems in the newly reunified metropolis.

Christine earned a Certificate in Landscape Design from the acclaimed Landscape Institute in 2017.  Her formal training at the Boston Architectural College focused on horticulture, sustainable landscape design, landscape history, and construction management.  She expanded her horticultural knowledge working at Weston Nurseries, delving deeper into native plant communities, and the plethora of woody shrubs and herbaceous plants.  Prior to her work as a landscape designer, Christine worked as an art consultant, an experience that trained her eye in the use of form, texture, color, and spatial composition.  These key elements are reflected in the landscape compositions she creates today.
