Marie-Eve Lussier designs her projects from the upper floor of her barn workshop at the heart of a traditional homestead from the Victorian era nestled in the valley of West Bolton. She discovered the property and its charming scenic backdrop by chance while researching the area for an architectural project in the Eastern Townships. Marie-Eve Lussier fell in love with the region and, in the early 2000s, decided it was the perfect place to make her home and creative workplace. Generous, lively and colourful, the landscape designs created by Marie-Eve Lussier and her team harmonize wonderfully with the natural environment and transition beautifully with the changing seasons.
Having grown up on a farm, Marie-Eve Lussier is completely at home in nature and wide open spaces. As a young child, she could recite the Latin names of all the perennials in the flower beds tended by her grandmother, who was passionate about English gardens. With an interest in architecture, Marie-Eve earned a college diploma with distinction in natural sciences, as well as a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture from the Université de Montréal, and studied residential architecture as an exchange student. Marie-Eve Lussier began her career as a landscape architect with her first firm, Mel Design, moving ahead one project at a time in the fast-paced Montreal area. In 2006, her garden entry in the International Flora exhibition captured the Prix Coup de Coeur, voted “favourite entry” by the public. With business booming, Marie-Eve Lussier put together a team and founded Création NaturEden.
From the office windows of NaturEden, Marie-Eve has a panoramic view of the stunning landscape of the Eastern Townships. This beautiful and inspiring backdrop sets the stage for the landscape architect and her colleagues. For the past 16 years, Marie-Eve Lussier and her team have been shaping each garden to blend with the natural features of the land, the uniqueness of the landscape and the wishes of their clients. Each carefully planned landscape design highlights shapes and colours that reflect the people who live in them. NaturEden relies on nature as its source of inspiration to create naturally flowing designs.
