There are any number of ways to approach landscaping as trade and as art. Naturally, there are the gorgeous efforts of Landscape Architects and Designers as pure Eye Candy – and it is substantially satisfying. My approach is different – decidedly so.
This blog is about the “doing” – the construction process itself. I have another blog which covers much of this. But that blog has morphed into more personal realms as blogs often do – and it should, because I enjoy people and sharing memoir-type things. They give me a chance to show off a little and who doesn’t enjoy that?
I have been at the landscaping game for my entire working life. I have constructed nice little landscapes around charming homes and people and I have constructed golf courses and the Portland Oregon Chinese Garden. I feel I have what has to amount to abundant experience using the tools of my trade. In this blog I intend to fully explain what the tools of that trade are and what they mean, slouching towards conclusions of construction projects in landscaping.
This is a blog for tool lovers.
And this is your nerd guide.
