HI, Jon

                My name is Chris Brown and I am a student currently enrolled in the young scholars program at the University of Maryland and in was wondering if you would be interested in answering two to three short questions for me about your experiences in landscape architecture. I’m very interested in this profession and I would love to hear about it personally from you. Thanks so much for your time and consideration and I can’t wait to hear from you!!    Sincerely, Chris Brown

Hi Jon,
I have some family friends here in Colorado who are building a modest home up near Syracuse, Livemore I think, and could use some advice on landscaping. They are good people a delight to know but I'll bet they don't offer a designer much cash ($50-150) for a walk through.. But ya never know. They tried to pump ideas out of me over dinner the other weekend, but ya can only offer so much over photo's. If you are interested let me know and I'll get you the contact info. Thx.
