The INKognito effect
Landscape design is not like origami. Origami requires imagination and skill, I showed woman's work here recently as proof but it is limited to paper. Landscape design is wide open in the material available, (bagels anyone?) it also requires imagination and skill but is easily shepherded into cliche so that foundation planting becomes formulaic.
When people participate in a forum such as this in an intelligent way although it would be easier to separate the askers from the answerers then things zing. Think collaboration. I find it intimidating when someone successful enough to own a house with a garden asks a question through their computer while announcing their ignorance. Presumably this is not a dummy and if there is a collaboration between a musician and a stage designer or a cook or a lay preacher or a dog lover and a garden designer this way s the INKognito way.
