Communicating the Vision and the Reality
Natural landscapes can range from 'wall to wall wild', to 'wild capsules' within a highly defined formal landscape. Determining your clients' comfort level within that spectrum early on will increase both design efficiency and enthusiasm for the built landscape. Accurately conveying the visual character, development time, and management requirements during the design process is also crucial. Finally, providing insight into the intellectual rationales for your decisions will convey to the client that 'wild landscaping' is not a random assortment of native plants, but a carefully considered endeavor. This final presentation will explore these points and provide time for class participants to share their thoughts, experiences, and expectations going forward.
