Evolving Edible Landscape

Description:

Over six years, this phased installation¬†has included rainwater harvesting infrastructure, followed by soil-building and hardscape, annual edibles, perennial living fence edibles and ornamental plantings. Locally quarried stone was used in the hardscaping; an acequia-irrigated orchard thrives in the property’s bioswales.
