SF Garden Show




un parc au printemps

An interpretation of a French public garden, this pretty, welcoming destination offers perspectives on culture and nature. Defined by a pathway, nearby fountain, building, and Sycamore canopy, the formal composition celebrates the setting. Clipped hedges provide enclosure, definition, and layering. Exuberant clear pink blooms and a verdant regional plant palette impart gentle movement. Versailles tree boxes contribute classical order, while movable furnishings, a crushed rock floor, and long steps add texture and social comfort. People (and a French mime!) activate the lively outdoor theater, with a mirrored chandelier suspended from a central limb for elevated interest and a sweet surprise.

My website is a bit of a garden tour. It shows what people wanted and how I helped them to get it, or if they didn’t know, how I helped them to decide.

To weigh, advise, interpret, integrate, and come up with some answers beyond the ability and imagination of the layman is the role of the landscape architect.
