Champlain Valley Zenscapes LLC is the culmination of owner David Lalonde’s passion for rocks, plants, and the outdoors. Graduating from SUNY Potsdam on the edge of the Adirondacks in 2014 with a Geology BS degree. David has spent much of his time since seeking zen experiences in the natural world; from hiking and fishing to white water rafting and mineral collecting. David is also a passionate gardener with a specific interest in alpine plants, miniatures, and bonsai. Incorporating the rare and unusual is a huge part of what we do at Champlain Valley Zenscapes. Being a transplant from the flat terrain of the St. Lawrence River Valley, David has an enormous appreciation for the beauty and grandeur of the green mountain state and loves to incorporate both the natural landscape as well as local materials into designs. Drawing much inspiration from Japanese gardening principals, we believe that all gardens are a work of art and as such, strive to actively be your partner in planning for your landscapes’ future. A self described rock and plant enthusiast, David’s infectious interest and enthusiasm for gardening make for an ideal partner in landscape development. Do you like the idea of your landscaper being as excited about your projects as yourself? We want to create value for our customers by offering a piece of mind, knowing your project will be completed the way you envisioned so you can spend your precious time on your own passions.
