PLANNING A GARDEN THAT WILL LAST: Listen to the Site
A successful garden relates well to the unique characteristics of its setting. Climate, water, wind, weather, shade and sun, slopes, soils, nutrients, suitable plant types and surrounding structures are all crucial elements to address in a solid garden plan.
During the planning phase, an experienced garden designer will anticipate future garden environments and will take into account the modifications necessary for long-term garden success. For example, a knowledgeable garden planner accounts for future changes such as soil qualities (pH, texture, and moisture) and the effects of sun, shade, and wind as plants grow.
