Center & Gardens

"As you move through the landscape, you are aware of being under the dappled shade, next to the water; you hear the sounds, hear and feel the gravel underfoot. The experience should transport you from the everyday world. We want people to come away with a 'wow.' " 
James Burnett 
Landscape Architect
