Landscape design begins with a careful examination of space.

  • How are the residence and outbuildings sited?
  • Is there existing hardscape and what condition is it in?
  • What are the most frequently used outdoor spaces?
  • What new features are being constructed?
  • What challenges do the slopes and terrain shifts present?
  • How should we imagine the paths of connection?
  • What are the local micro-climates?
  • Are the homeowners gardeners or do they want to become gardeners?
