"Landscape architecture has a fourth dimension - time. You have to think about what time you are designing for, and how the project will look over time. Natives have a great durability and continuity. Lately, Iíve been inspired by ornamental grasses. They are strong perennials, not too showy, that subtly look good year round and year after year."
