Welcome to JFK Landscape Design, LLC.

“A Sense of Place” How someone perceives or experiences a place or environment.

Natural or manmade landscapes take us on a sensatory journey. We feel a connection to a place from the simplest things. The smell of lilacs in springtime, listening to the leaves of birch trees rustle in the fall, or collecting sprigs of spruce, oak, and hemlocks for a bonfire in the winter. The ecology, the seasons, and lifestyle provide a canvas for those who see its beauty.

For three decades, Johanna F. Kuss, principal designer and owner of JFK Landscape Design, LLC has designed and created award-winning landscapes that impart inspiration from the natural geomorphology of the region. Ms. Kuss believes it is the responsibility of the professional designer to create a sense of order, space, and interest through form and texture.

Johanna services clients who want their landscapes to reflect their lifestyle. Her designs provide areas for physical and emotional relaxation, interests in the outdoors, spaces to gather, and areas to recreate.
As an accomplished professional designer, Ms. Kuss has been recognized by the Landscape Contractors Association, Federated Garden Clubs of America, and numerous other organizations. She has volunteered her time and services to local, county, and regional businesses, as well as published landscape articles in regional publications. Her design projects have been featured in the “Best of Baltimore” Magazine.

Johanna is committed to delivering creative design solutions, along with innovations in environmentally sound construction practices that complement the unique and delicate habitats in New Hampshire.

Her functional and artistic landscapes not only reflect her clients’ lifestyles, but they also reflect sustainability practices and techniques through careful analyses of the biodiversity of New England’s complex ecosystems.

Her goal is to disturb as little of the site as possible and to mitigate the project with carefully selected construction materials and indigenous plants. She leaves the site natural, balanced, and harmonious with the existing environment.
