Life is about relationships and connections. Good landscape design becomes the setting for healthy family relationships and friendships to blossom and grow. And good landscape design extends our connections to the rest of the created world in positive, meaningful ways; reminding us that we have been delegated the awesome responsibility of good stewardship. Every day of our lives, we are cultivating something. Sometimes our work is in the fertile "soil' of human hearts, sometimes our work is literally in the ground. Whatever stage of life you are in, remember that life is about relationships and connections. And that both can be lovingly cultivated in the garden.

This sunken fire pit illustration shows how a slight change in elevation, properly-scaled boulders and plantings, and a thoughtfully-designed water feature can create a space that is peaceful and nurturing.
