I was asked
"Do we need a new lawn"?
During our consult
they turned to each other to whisper.
Apparently someone made the recommendation
they would need a new lawn.
"Well. The lawn you have right now
is doing what it is supposed to do -
Defining the space thought of as lawn.
So. You don't need a new lawn."
"If your lawn does not look the way you want it to,
that is another question.
Then you should say to me
'How can our lawn look THIS way."
I can help you get what you want and need.
But it should never be the work of the designer
to make judgements against you,
especially ones that make anxieties
that can only be relieved
by paying your landscaper.
