Design The Past Into The Future

"There is no future in the past." A narrow, mundane & sad thought.  'With little imagination', as Anne of Green Gables would say.  
 It's a thrill to Landscape Design century old farm buildings & trees, 'the past', into the future.
Using plantings & methods of the past, and the gardens of ancient Italy as template.
Creating a sense of intimacy when the space is 100's of acres.
FRISSON:  Excitement at the front end of winter, bare branched trees.  Sasanqua's coated in bloom at the tail end of fall.
Each, at the same moment.
Creating a landscape taking care of your spirit more than you will ever have to take care of it.
I love putting a new future into the past.  
Garden & Be Well,     XO Tara
