your image - I would love to incorporate your image into a presentation (Trends in Outdoor Living) I am doing for the Shade conference in Phoenix. Is there any way you could please send me this image (approx. 1200x800 pixels is fine) to: kathryn@prideauxdesign.net? I would SO appreciate it. And I will definitely give your firm credits on the image. Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Even the most utilitarian of spaces can transform from a simple transit space into a vista in its own right.This carefully thought-out design elevates ordinary steps into a visual joy of texture and color contrast set off by a simple sphere.
Donald Pell - Gardens added this to Energize Your Landscape With Masses of Grasses
Look for year-round green. Autumn moor grass, a tough plant that will take a variety of soils, makes a great ground cover. This grass stays evergreen through most winters in the Philadelphia area — a pleasant burst of color in dreary weather. Along with reed grass (Calamagrostis brachytricha, zones 4 to 9) and most Carex, this grass grows with great success in light shade.
Frank Organ added this to Circle Round for Great Garden Design
Spheres don't have to be large or dominate the space. Small ones can also create interest and lift a garden design.
