Atlanta's Tilting Windmill Landscape Design specializes in residential and commercial landscape and garden design and installation. Our approach is to create the most perfect, custom landscape possible. We handle all phases - design, installation of plants and hardscape, construction of decks or other unique features, and even ongoing maintenance (maintenance is in a more limited service area). Every home is unique, and so every one of our gardens echoes and plays on the character of its home. A frequent question I hear is, "Where did your name come from?" Tilting Windmill is a reference to Cervantes' Don Quixote. Don Quixote was a man, who after reading too many heroic tales of chivalric knights, lost his mind and decided that he was, himself, a knight errant. On one of his misadventures, Don Quixote, riding through the Spanish countryside, comes across a group of windmills. Again, because he's gone mad, he does not see windmills, but rather sees a group of giants. He proceeds to charge the 'giants,' attacking them with his lance (tilting is another term for jousting), and much hilarity ensues in 17th-century-pratfall fashion. As such, in our modern lexicon, the term 'tilting at windmills' has come to mean 'fighting imaginary enemies,' a definition which has never set well with me. I've always preferred a more romantic definition. To me 'tilting at windmills' is the same as fighting an unwinnable battle. But are we not nobler for the fight? The same is true for a garden. There is no way to 'win' a garden. A garden is never done. We are working with living things in a garden. Living things grow, they change form, and they die. So, while a garden is never done, there are moments in a garden when everything is harmonious and in balance. We strive for those perfect moments. And we are nobler for that pursuit. We're doing all we can to make Atlanta more beautiful, one landscape at a time. Our passion is the extraordinary.
