I have some beautiful residential projects in the Princeton NJ area. I also have a number of projects that construction will begin on this spring. Moon also has a very unique history as the oldest landscape nursery in the country (1767).January 23, 2009 at 2:29 pm #175527Bill WilberParticipant
Hi Megan –
I don’t have a residential project for you to cover, but I recently completed a courtyard renovation at Flagler Hospital in St. Augustine. the dedication ceremony is actually tonight.
The existing courtyard was a bout 10 years old and was designed for design sake. Not for the users. The main benefactors, Clark & Alice Alger, had a vision to create a Tranquility Garden where the patients, families, and employees of Flagler Hospital could reflect, meditate and relax.
We kept a small portion of the existing hardscape and revamped the rest, reusing the old concrete pavers in a new configuration, and we added 4 new pergola structures, new landscape lighting, new fountain feature. Also, being in a hospital I thought it would be intersting to use a plant palette comprised entirely of plants that have some sort of medicinal heritage. (i.e. Saw Palmetto, used to treat prostate cancer) and cross-referencing those with plants that are low maintenance and low water use.
I have a few pictures on my website (3w-designs.com) that you can view to get an idea of the finished product.
Please let me know if you are interested in further discussing the details.
P.S. I am a subscriber to your magazine, and I use it frequently for inspiration in my designs.January 23, 2009 at 4:07 pm #175526
HI Bill, will you send me the above message to my work email account? email@example.com
Thanks! I have been interested in these healing gardens and like that your plant palette reflects that as well.
