One of the many pleasures of my profession is receiving photographs such as the one posted here from clients who totally understand the part they play as stewards of the environment.
The gardens I create for them not only draw on strong design principles that relate to the home and the region but in addition to this provide much needed niche complementarity and habitat regeneration in the U.S. residential landscape.
It won't be long now......looking forward to finishing up our work of cutting back last summer's prairie grasses on this client's property. Then we wait and as the earth warms and the mycorrhiza fungi break their dormancy the intricate and beautiful workings of the microscopic soil food web below begins to manifest its work in the ground above. We are the recipients of the gifts of this intricate system that nurtures both our souls and our bodies.
