Not gonna answer all your questions because I don't have that much time. But I have two favorite landscape design styles: High desert (think Bend, Oregon, basalt rocks, twisty pines, grasses, blues, greys, browns some yellow flowering groundcovers, but generally more of a spacious sparse feel you'd find in the high desert. And Japanese Garden design: (think careful rock choice and placement, lush greens, decorative gravel, character specimen trees, ferns, balance and symmetry. In Japan, I think you have to train under a teacher for many years to become a garden designer and those positions are held in high esteem.Seven. What is your special landscape design niche? What do you love to do to people's property the most?
