Landscape design provides splendor for the senses

Written by: Amy Howell Hirt

Nancy stands on a pergola-shaded patio, with a utopia of a landscape design stretching out before her. A cascade of greenery frames a waterfall, flowing into a pond that teems with koi fish and meanders toward the horizon. But for the moment, she isn’t focused on the breathtaking view. She points out a few massive blooms on a hydrangea tree, water-logged after recent rains, and laments that a couple summer-blooming dwarf crape myrtles—one of her favorite plants—have yet to reveal their purple flowers.
