What are you most proud of? This project has exceeded my imagination of what is possible with plants. I've realized so many possible combinations of plants and how dynamic a garden really is.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Before you start build a garden of this size or any size, always put your ideas on paper. Plan every area from different view points of your yard. And the most important bit of advice would be to think big! Small spaces will only feel smaller if you design with small elements.
