I have a client this summer who is very capable. We have enjoyed working out the intangible design aspects of his garden vision in a series of sketches and wide-ranging conversations, and now it is time to start making a mess. I spent the afternoon onsite with a heavy mallet, a hand-held level, a Sharpie and some improvised PVC stakes prepping the site for a crew to come and do some rough fill grading. We will be changing the shape of the land radically for this garden.
Some projects do not require overthinking. Looking forward to watching this garden develop!
