posted; 06/30/06 Here’s a few shots thrown together of a few projects that I had put together with some sandstone. The bench in the upper-right is a sandstone called Tennessee Web-wall. I guess the locals have named it as such because the striking rings of mineral elements in the sandstone look like webbing. I’ve not […]Read More Sandstone Slabs

posted; 06/27/06 Patio, lower landing area, and stone courtyard combined with space to add a spa bring together everything you need for a dynamic outdoor space. These elements are all show in collaboration with each other in this rendering. The clients were very happy with this layout and the only real changes will be to […]Read More Concept Drawing leads to project.
posted; 06/26/06 This was the simple black line drawing before anything was done. Rendering after adding some color pencil, decided to just fool around with pencils this morning, and not soak up any fumes from markers. I don’t really like to render in pencil only, I use pencils to enhance the marker work done for […]Read More Doodling a Landscape Rendering
posted; 06/25/06 On the 22nd James Lippincott from Land+Living.com gave me a shout out in his “Clippings” area. I would like to thank James and at the same time suggest you take a look at their site. They look at any; and all sorts of design-no matter the field. Design is design. Land+Living will track […]Read More Land+Living Network
posted; 06/25/06 I have actually not seen a computer since Thursday, I had been camping for a few days, so I had been away from posting-obviously. Tomorrow I find out how some of my other presentation drawings worked out and will share that info here.Read More Been a few days . . .
posted; 06/22/06 More on this later. Conceptual shows more of a Boulevard look for the campus. Right now it is a simple two-lane road, parallel parking on one side, pull-in parking on the other. The trees lining the street would also be new additions.Read More Conceptual for Campus Entry
posted; 06/22/06 I have done some tweaking to my sidebar, and made a slight change in the overall layout to the site. After doing this I looked at how this page displays in both IE and Opera (which is the browser I use almost 100%). As a Designer I am amazed at the differences. Mainly […]Read More Opera vs IE, My Personal Browser War
posted; 06/21/06 Rendering above was done with Paint.NET which I spoke about on the 19th. It was done in this style so I could e-mail a color conceptual to the contractor enabling them to easily identify the different areas in the landscape. This rendering was/is never meant to be used as a tool in the […]Read More “Further”Pergola Study, a Color Rendering
posted; 06/20/06 Just wanted to make a mention of this web site. Sphere has listed me as one of the most relevant blogs for “Landscape Design”. A big thanks from me, as my little presence continues to grow on the WWW. I will continue to try and bring relevant info on design to this site, […]Read More Sphere, searching for blogs.
posted; 06/19/06 I usually do all my thinking on just black line drawings-usually just a Sharpie, red line pencil, or blue lead pencil. Those are my thinking tools. In this case I needed to throw in a little quick color and send this to the contractor of record. So I opened up this rough plan […]Read More More on the Entrance, from yesterday.
posted; 06/15/06 I don’t know, I just don’t know . . . . . what really doesn’t work for me is the drawing perspective vs. what I see in my head. I think this would be a nice unique design but this angle and most of the others I have drawn from any rendering type […]Read More Rendering for Administrative Entrance
posted; 06/16/06 Another rendering of the site-before any labeling. This is at an angle further back than yesterday’s post. Also no embellishment, dots doo-dads etc. Looks strange without those final little marks to make a presentation drawing. I will probably present this in the initial meeting-because we are in the exploratory stage. Not the stage […]Read More Further Pergola Study
posted; 06/15/06 This is after several attempts at where to start the uprights for the pergola system. This is to act as an entryway into the courtyard of an outdoor seating area and cafeteria, it’s also close to the football field and other venues so it will be used for pre/post game get-togethers. This area […]Read More Rendering to find solutions in Landscape Design.
