GARDENING AT 80

What type of landscape design will keep you in your home past the age of 80? It's about beauty in Vanishing Threshold with the house. Minimal maintenance that can be performed without knowledgeable workers. Using rain water only and placing the right plant in the right spot to be rid of pruning.

.

A fearlessness of simplicity yet imperious demands of beauty.

.

A landscape for any age. For any era.

.

Why this title? Over the past 2-3 years I've been hired to design landscapes for various women, ages 70 up, who are single and wish to remain in their home. Aside from feeling honored I feel extremely challenged. If life tosses health problems, money worries, and a leaking roof, landscape issues could make them decide to move.

.

Designs I did for these women have been the best of my career.

GARDEN PATHS & STEPPING STONES

Paths are one of the first elements to design, and to install in a landscape. Paths draw the foot, the eye and the emotions. They build mystery in the landscape. And they help you take out the trash.

.

Paths allow energy, feng shui, to flow in your landscape.

.

Each site is unique and so are its paths. Paths don't have to be expensive. Many types of paths don't require skilled labor.

.

Paths, in focus, are those you can do yourself.
