Second Summer specializes in offering landscape architecture services for those of us in transition – moving from hands-on parenting to empty nesting or caretaking elderly parents, while our work lives are focused on moving towards retirement.

Hi, I’m Ann Yakimovicz. I'm a landscape architect, and I’m here to guide you.

We'll start with a series of simple, fun activities that identify how your five senses uniquely react to nature. The design technique we'll use is called Elderyarding®. It marries creative landscape architecture with the latest research on outdoor spaces for healthful living.

The result?

A one-of-a-kind, personalized plan for your yard or garden that lets you thrive!
