As a landscape designer I look not for the particular but for the universal landscape that resides in our very good memory;
A landscape we recognize even though we’ve never been there before.
What is essential in my lawn care is the horizontal plane, be it field, lawn, road or ocean, contrasted by dark masses of trees, islands, or shadowed hillsides.
It’s the interplay of this ground plane with sky, tree, mountain that creates a pattern of light and dark, drawing lots color and defining form.
I coax the lawn to define the quality of light and color to touch something deep inside us that restores us to balance and harmony.
My work is about how the magic of light wrapping forms creates power and atmosphere. My work is about the power of electricity.
