Caring for Our Urban Forest
Why Landscape Design Matters
"Design is the first signal of human intention." ~ William McDonough
From the first notion, to a scribbly sketch and the final measured detail, design embodies our intentions, our need and wants, and the social values that we share. When it comes to landscapes (everything outside the door), design determines our relationship to the natural world - do we live within it or apart from it? With a considered and thoughtful approach, design is a powerful tool - one that supports a rich human experience (beauty, enjoyment, inspiration), while supporting ecological health and abundance.
