  1. My question is about “edible landscaping”. Are you involved in this or do you have any suggestions about it, since it seems to me that it’ becoming pretty popular. I’m doing a little bit of it, and I would be interested to learn more.



  2. One of the first things to do is check with local environmental laws as this might have an influence on your design ideas. Many property owners are enhancing their water side properties with environmentally innovative ideas.
