Princeton Friends School’s classroom addition required evergreen screening from the road. We worked to convince the Princeton Historic Commission that the site’s historical landscape was deciduous and agricultural to permit the construction of a teaching landscape comprised of a native tree eco-literacy allee, an edible garden, extension of the pollinator rain garden, an outdoor classroom, and a restored woodland. The design was a true collaboration between client and designer.
“Working with you was great…it provided the critical framework to build upon. In addition to the School’s teaching garden, which has almost reached capacity this spring, I am developing a pollinator/bird resource garden plan. There is so much to learn, which is always energizing to me, and so much overlooked and underappreciated plant material to work with.”
