A great first step to designing your garden...bubble diagrams! http://www.lisaorgler.com/blog/2015/2/14/designing-your-garden-bubble-diagrams
Designing your landscape can often feel overwhelming. The best place to start is with a bubble (or functional) diagram.  This is wonderful way to organize your spaces without a lot of detail and drawing investment. The purpose of a functional diagram is to study the relationship of spaces and the movement or visual connections between them.  When planning your landscape it's important to arrange your spaces first with a bubble diagram...

After reviewing your responses to my 2015 Survey (which I greatly appreciate you taking the time to fill out) two topics rose to the top: spatial design and planting design.  Before I jump into either one, I felt it was important to discuss their differences. Those new to garden design may not realize both exist...and are important.  Spatial design can easily be overlooked, by jumping ahead into planting design. It's like writing a se...

It's always a nice refresher to define spatial design vs. planting design when creating a garden:  http://www.lisaorgler.com/blog/2015/1/16/spatial-vs-planting-design

I love the art of food and gardening.
Introduction
For the past few years I've lived a double life.  By day I was a landscape architect/garden designer, while at night I created whimsical food illustrations for my blog, clients and gift shops.  It was finally time to merge these worlds...and fess up that it was perfectly okay.
