TIMELESS QUALITY OF EXPERIENCE
I love it when clients tell me decades after an installation that they still love their landscape. This is timeless quality in action!
I think of a garden more as a stage than a canvas – because it is a living story with plants and garden accents both as lead characters and props. Like a playwright, I deliberate and even agonize over the right plant combinations from a health, visual and experiential viewpoint.
The plant combinations are like characters that move you and others through the story of the garden.
There often is a tug-of-war between the current and future conditions, aesthetics, and needs of the landscape that evolve over time – because plants grow and change! This is especially true in newer gardens where finding a balance between instant gratification and longer-term rewards can be challenging.
