Design Philosophy

"Art in the landscape provides an extra dimension to spaces that would otherwise be solely dependent on plants. Using plants and art to complement each other results in multi-layered spaces that provide stimulation and engagement on many levels. It also provides an opportunity for expression on a particularly personal plane, where pieces of art, sculpture or text are chosen to reflect the individual tastes, style and personality of the landscape's users."
