Functional gardens that are beautiful, low maintenance, and kind to the environment.
😍Asclepias purpuracens. Not an easy plant to get, but oh boy, what a beauty. Native to Va! #asclepiaspurpurascens #fairfax,va #conservationlandscape #landscapedesign #nativeplants
Yesterday building the berms at the Lorton project. This was a really fun design since the client wanted something different and that would reflect their love for art. The spirals are based on the Golden Ratio. Part of having the mounds is also to elevate the planting and give them some privacy from an access road. Hundreds of native plants will populate these spirals and hopefully lots of pollinators as well. Very grateful for all the help I am getting in translating this design to reality. Stay tuned. Will be posting more pics in the next few days. #goldenratio #design #goldenproportions #misteriesofnature #1.6180339887 #nativeplants #nativeplantlandscapedesign #lortonva #landscapedesign
Una tarde cualquiera en el jardín. #jardin #plantasnativas #virginia #fallschurch #fairfax #NPLD
The NPLD team and the crew from our contractor at our site today. It was so hot and humid, but we all managed to keep the morale up and excellent teamwork. We are installing a native garden with about 90 different plant species and more than 3,000 plants. I believe it will be the most beautiful native plant garden in Vienna, Va. Very grateful to this client who trusted us with this wonderful project and has the will and desire to help the environment.
Thank you #Matchbox for the paper straws! Way to go.
#Bowmasroot. New to me. It appeared in the garden and I found out it is actually a native. Lucky me!
I can’t start my day without first hanging out with my little friends 🐝🐝 Good job #spiderwort
What a beauty. #thermopsiscarolina
I’ am very happy to announce that our garden won 2nd place at the '2019 Best Urban BMP in the Bay Award' on the 'Best Residential BMP' category. It was a project installed in the Fall of 2017 and partially funded by the VCAP program. It was nominated by Fairfax County. We are feeling happy and grateful! Woo-Hoo! https://chesapeakestormwater.net/the-bubbas/2019-bubbas/2019-best-residential-bmp/

Contemplating this majestic Elm tree this afternoon made me forget I could no longer feel my ears, nose or toes. 🥶#arlingtonva #winter #blisteringcold @landscapeconsultation #gardendesign #nativeplants
The garden design process in three illustrations. The spirals will be mounds of different heights densely planted with natives. Inspired by the golden ratio. The circle in the middle is a sunken patio. The blue are the flat areas of lawn. I thought it would be fun to illustrate the lawn in blue. Artistic license I guess ;) Lorton, Va here we go!

A good option for the Winter garden. It doesn’t grow taller than about 3 feet. It grows horizontally. Ilex opaca ‘Maryland Dwarf’. #ilexopaca #marylanddwarf #nativeplants #winterinterest #nationalbotanicgardens #dcgardens
