My approach to each garden and each client is unique to the situation. There are basic problems that most gardens I feel should address, but my interaction with my clients and the site mostly determine my inspiration and the genesis of each project. I eschew having a determined visual profile, and attempt to leave my thoughts as open as possible. This results in a wide aesthetic portfolio. Although I do see each garden as an artistic endeavor, I define my mission as solving both aesthetic and conceptual challenges. Every garden may be different, but I strongly feel that my work must relate in real human terms and experiences. Everyday, I feel there is something to learn.
