i like to charge what the customer wants to spend -- the challenge is matching that to what benefits them/ecology the most
i have been a lifelong gardener
i realized in the early 80's that i have an affinity for this and can help others learn, appreciate and benefit from ecologically sound lifelstyles and landscapes
good ones mostly
mix of residential, organizations, government and business
lawn conversion to dry creek bed and boulder garden with climate appropriate and native accents
find examples in literature and your neigborhood that captures the ideas, look and feel of what you want
that provides a useful starting point for consultation and design
how does what i think i want blend with the realities of my lifestyle -- will i change with the design?
take a look at my design questionnaire and hash out your project goals and principles before talking to installation contractors KNOW YOUR VALUES
