To Our Dear Clients and Friends,
As you'll note, much time has passed since our last posting; and as determined as we are to regularly update you all with our current events, the times does always seem to slip by... For now, here are some updates, and plans for the future. Please do keep in touch!
Well, 2009 has come to an end, and what great memories we have created together! We wanted to share with you, our lovely friends and clients, what we’ve accomplished together this past year, and to give you a glimpse into what we’re planning for the upcoming year. We’ve created healing gardens, we’ve expanded our xerophytic landscapes, we’ve created gorgeous gateways, we’ve struggled to bring parks to the neighborhood, and we’ve designed and installed a permeable space on our roadways. A downsized budget lead to a flourishing dry streambed garden with so much rhythm we gasp each time we see it. We’ve had so much fun creating container gardens, and we’re even working on a fantastic vertical garden.
Each year we feel so fortunate to have made so many new friends, and it is wonderful to be a part of your lives. Truly, each garden is a metaphor for the evolution of a life. We see it happen so many times to so many of our lovely friends and clients, and we are so happy to be on this journey with you. We thank you for this partnership, and we are eager to transform more lives, one garden at a time. In the upcoming year we plan to expand our planting installation services. When a garden has been designed and planted by Botany, we are always so pleased by the outcome. We also intend to do more fine gardening. We often have clients contact us when their beautiful new garden is struggling because of a maintenance disaster. Sometimes it takes a visit or two to bring back the beauty to the garden, and sometimes a little more work is needed, but it is always gratifying to etch out the beauty lying within the poorly maintained garden. Vertical gardens are all the rage, and we intend to do more—please do contact us to learn more about this striking and fun new twist on gardening. We’d also love to get more large pots into your gardens— we’ve never had a disappointed client after we convinced them to go with large pots! We’re working with a lot of new texture and form ideas; a garden with great texture and form calls you to come closer and experience the garden more intimately. Several new services are on the horizon, so keep your eyes open for these. Most importantly, we hope to keep adding beauty to the lives of our friends, old and new. If you or a friend might benefit from a lovely new garden, please contact us soon. This is the best time to plan for a beautiful new garden to enjoy in the spring or summer of this year. And if you already do have a beautiful new garden that we’ve designed for you, please get in touch with us and let us know how you and your garden are doing! Best wishes for the new year from your friends at Botany of Design!
