It takes a few years for a landscape I design and all its elements to approach the vision in my head. This image taken last week shows the garden in early spring–not all the plantings are up. Even just finished–the custom design of the welcoming gate to the back garden, the meandering path from drive to back terrace, the waterfall garden in the distance, and the plantings look wonderful. To see those images of the just installed landscape and gardens go the portfolio section on my website, www.mariavonbrincken.com. You’ll see that in a couple of years, as shown above, a well tended landscape begins to really show its magic.
