I’ve prepared many, many landscape plans for clients over the years, but (oddly enough) – not with detailed plantings. For me, of all the various components of a design: conceptual; grading; lighting; materials – planting design is the most time consuming – and the most rewarding. If you have ever flipped through a nursery catalogue you will know what I mean! How to mix and match those plants within a particular locale, keeping in mind having seasonal interest; taking into account how these plants will evolve over time……WHOA!
