was a practicing landscape architect for about
the first half of my working life, with the most recent 1/2 being
spent in urban planning. I did have public and commercial
projects but always kept a flow of work on residential sites as well.
condensed comments and shots are from the residential
work only. The drawings were done my hand prior to CAD (other than
Garden design #4) but I did use "Canvas" and other emerging software as
it became became available.
found the greatest
satisfaction in trying to design spaces
that were not limited
to plantings but also involved some paving or architectural elements
(fencing, walls, etc.).
The sketches and solutions became
even more personal as their owners added finishing touches...I
like the idea that a garden is a "space" first, and
that if it is satisfying to the designer and caretaker, it might
evolve further as it matures.
