Although Eve’s Garden Design is a new venture for me, it’s been a nearly 20-year journey getting here. Over the years, I’ve designed a lot of interesting places, from intimate gardens to parks, streetscapes, and plazas. Each project has helped define my sense of purpose as a landscape architect and has honed my design sensibilities. And now, I find myself knowing precisly what I want to be doing. I want to work with people who are ready to move from the usual toward the unexpected, who want their outdoor spaces to reflect their ecological ideals and their personalities, and who want to surround themselves with artistic, sustainable, life-giving beauty. The crazy economy is already giving us a nudge (a shove?) in a less-consumptive direction. I’m going to run with that.
