“In all, let nature never be forgot… Consult the genius of the place.”
—Alexander Pope (1688-1744)
There are often hidden opportunities on a site; A natural vista, a rock outcropping, a copse of trees or an old stone wall, the moss and mica on a rock that catch the sun’s afternoon light. None of these should be overlooked when designing a landscape. In addition working with natural features is usually less costly than reinventing the place.
