Sports from a non sporty designer

I've been working on a challenging project for the past several weeks--a back yard play space/entertaining space/adult enclosed garden for family with 4 active, sports addicted boys. The owner wants everything to look 'old' as if it's been there for a long time. We'll be using repurposed and refinished architecturally salvaged ironwork through out, dry stacked walls and a still to be determined paving stone--he hates bluestone.

I did a down and dirty color rendering. It's not very high res so the detail gets lost. There's a large patio/pergola area that is connected by a walk from the driveway, a formal(ish) sculpture garden and a huge playing field for the boys.

The great news is that I'm working again instead of just pretending to work...I guess the slump is over.

Thanks for following me on twitter-interrresting blog to which have subscribed. Good to hear business is picking up for you. We could have been busier had we been prepared to drop price, but garden designers are paid little enough here as it is. Always interesting to read desriptions of jobs. Glad to be in touch. Best wishes Robert
