Our focus is a more natural aesthetic, with an emphasis on the use of native plants, and local stone. We work without using synthetic chemicals, (fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, etc.). Instead, we work with nature. We plant to attract predator insects, use succession, some plants are better adapted to a site than others, let the plants we want out compete the ones we don't.
When we talk about environment, we're talking about the place we live, and how we live there. A well designed garden can be a sanctuary, your own personal refuge from the stresses of day to day. The garden is it's own ecosystem, providing food, both for you and for wildlife, shelter for birds, cleans the air, and lets water infiltrate the ground, which recharges our aquifers.
A planting on the edge of the property can help mitigate noise from an adjoining property. In addition, studies have shown that a well designed landscape can increase a properties value anywhere from 5 to 20%.

This is a dry stacked stone arch. It was built as practice for more ambitious projects to come. The point of this build is to do the best you can with what you have. Which in my case is usually construction debris.
