Water Garden Creation by Reflections of Nature


For Reflections of Nature, every landscaping job starts with a dreamscape. “Our job is to take the ideas, concepts and feelings that are in the client’s head, put them down on paper in a design that the client can envision and then make it happen,” says company president Michael Gulbrandsen. 

The Poughkeepsie-based company designs and maintains dreamlike outdoor spaces such as English country gardens, Japanese courtyards, butterfly and songbird habitats and feng shui gardens. “We can create your own personal sanctuary with streams, waterfalls, stepping-stone paths through ponds, ancient stone planters, furniture carved from an old oak tree, woven wooden fencing sculptures, fire pits and intertwined, branched tunnels leading to a secret garden. With the addition of moss-covered boulders and logs, the space looks like an ancient, magical forest,” Gulbrandsen says. To see their designs close up, visit the Reflections of Nature booth at the 2016 Hudson Valley Beltane & Fairy Festival on May 14.

Reflections of Nature’s designers have advanced education and certifications in wetlands delineation and construction, soil and erosion control, rain garden design, sustainable landscaping and creating wildlife habitats. “Not only can we to create the garden of your dreams, but we also build wetlands walkways, clear areas for pools, grade lawns, repair driveways, fix drainage problems, build patios and even arrange flowers in pots,” Gulbrandsen says. The company offers custom landscape service throughout Dutchess, Westchester, Putnam County and southern Columbia Counties in New York, as well as western Fairfield County in Connecticut.
