Beginning with the simple wish by the owners for a garden into which they could peer from above, this design unfolded in complexities. Situated along Taylor Run creek in a hollow adjoining Natural Lands' Stroud Preserve, plantings had to meet the physical demands of heavy weed pressure and frequent flooding.
Grand masses of adaptable perennials, such as Hibiscus moschuetos, Aster tartaricus and Agastache 'Blue Fortune', were selected for their ability to colonize rapidly, edge out weed infiltration and maintain form after submergence. A heavy hand was given to the composition to legibly knit design with the natural landscape.
