Landscape Designer’s Technique: ‘Paint With Plants’

MOORESTOWN NJ – What goes through the mind of a landscape designer as he or she surveys a property for a prospective client?

Dianne Walker, owner of and landscape designer for Colorstone Gardens LLC in Moorestown, says her technique is to “paint with plants.” With the land as her canvas, she told the Burlington County (NJ) Times newspaper, she creates outdoor environments that reflect what she hears people tell her during client interviews. She tries to tie their desires in to the surrounding property’s features or elements, she said.

A video (above) in which Walker was in interview subject herself and explained her process, was posted Thursday (Aug. 29, 2013) by The Times on the YouTube channel of Calkins Media.
