About Blue Heron

History and Experience

Scott Hokunson, the principal behind Blue Heron Landscape Design, entered the Horticultural Industry in 1981, working his way through college for a small but very talented wholesale nursery and landscape company in the Farmington Valley. After finishing college the decision was made to strike out on his own full time and for 13 years he designed, installed and maintained landscapes throughout North Central Connecticut. In 1998 Scott’s path changed when he accepted an offer to work in the building industry, which 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. In 2006 Scott returned to his passion, and created Blue Heron Landscape Design, LLC.

The soft tones of Boston City Hall pavers, and the blue of Nepeta create a pleasing entranceway.

From Scott:

Over the many years, and through the many experiences I have had in the Horticultural and related industries, I have come to realize, that this is my passion. I 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 beautiful gardens with low impact on the environment, a landscape that will grow with them as they travel the paths of their lives.

  1. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
