There are many styles of garden to create and as many ways as there are gardeners to create a garden.
I start with three basic elements
1. Soil and site dynamics 2. Style of site architecture whether it be home or office 3. Clients input vision
out of this and ensuing conversations, I develop the direction of the project whether it be solving a problem or adding an edible landscape to a backyard.
After the basics I need to do some sketching and estimating. I strive to create low maintenance landscapes that are water wise functional and aesthetic. Native plants are perfectly addapted to this end requiring less water once established while tying in to the local food web thereby performing an ecological and aesthetic function at the same time. Hardscaping is always an option and creates a dramatic contrast with the softer lines of the plantings. Stonework, brick paths or a simpe sculptural piece can be just the right thing for your space.
