Dear friends, old and new,

Thank you for visiting my website and taking the time to read about and look at my work. This website has photos of my work and links to useful gardening sites.  As of September 1, 2011, I have started to write a landscaping/gardening blog.  Please visit it at www.EdibleLandscapingMadeEasy.com. I will cover all aspects of landscape design, plants, tools, soil and more. Let me know what you'd like to hear more about. Be sure to pass it on to anyone you think may enjoy it.

It has been my good fortune to make my living doing what I love, designing and building gardens. For the last 30 years I have been a landscape designer specializing in edible and native plant landscapes. With a degree in conservation of natural resources and having apprenticed to one of the great horticulturists, Alan Chadwick, I have always strived to combine an awareness of the need for designing within the framework of organic and natural gardening with an aesthetic of elegance and enjoyment of the garden.

When you look through the gallery of photos you'll see pictures of different gardens – each with its own set of challenges. Perhaps you'll find similar conditions to your own situation and appreciate how we dealt with them. From steep, hilly slopes to large, sunny lots, there are many solutions.

As the need to conserve water increases, we can still have beautiful gardens that thrive. By using suitable plants, good soil preparation, cutting edge irrigation methods and rainwater catchment systems, we can create bountiful gardens that enhance our environment.

You will find links to important websites about rainwater catchment, landscape fire safety, composting, soil building and many other aspects of growing a healthy garden that is appropriate to your area. Please visit my blog daily at www.EdibleLandscapingMadeEasy.com

I invite you to peruse both websites and look forward to hearing from you.

In the joy of gardening,

Avis Rappoport Licht
