On a “Modern Mission” in Garden Design magazine

It may be cold and gray outside, but that means it’s a perfect time of year to curl up with the new Winter 2018 issue of Garden Design magazine. I got my copy today and am excited to tell you about my article “Modern Mission,” which appears on page 54. It explores a lush, oasis-style courtyard garden and outer garden of drought-tolerant Australian plants on the site of an old pear orchard in Sonoma, California. Photos are by the inimitable Marion Brenner.
