When you build a garden, there are many ways to think about
what you want. Is to be a showcase for color or a quiet meditative
space? Will it be an enclosed, shady woodland garden or an open,
sunny cottage garden?
You may not always know what you like, but you almost always
know what you do not like. That is another good place to start.
Next, think about the colors you like to see, that you like
to wear, that you have surrounded yourself with in your home.
These colors can be transferred to the garden. But, remember:
your taste often changes over time. And, fortunately, the
garden color palette can change as there is an abundance of
trees, shrubs, vines, groundcovers and flowers to choose from.
And, most importantly, remember that this is your garden.
While there are many examples of what you can do, what you
ultimately create is based on your needs and desires.
My purpose as a garden designer to help you define those
needs and desires, and help you create a garden that fits
your lifestyle, your wishes and your budget.
