No one is born knowing how to garden; we experiment with ways to design outdoor places to meet our changing needs. Landscape patterns, the physical elements, and arrangements of outdoor space designed to accommodate activities are preferences slowly acquired over time.
The patterns and activities of our home environments shape us as much as we shape them. Your home landscape is an evolution of personal experiences from every stage of life: child, adult or elder. As you accumulate a personal language of landscape preferences, these skills enhance the quality of your life.
Lifelong landscape designs create environments that connect with nature, encompass a home, and promote healthy living by providing mobility, social interaction, and places to sustain the body and soul. Learn easy steps to design your own lifelong landscape through more than 200 landscape patterns and activities that illustrate components of healthy living. Enhance the quality of your life at any stage with practical advice from this inspirational landscape architect with more than thirty years experience.
