We often turn to our favorite designers for inspiration. We discovered the work of Ron Lutsko in Page Dickey's amazing book, Breaking Ground. If you've ever visited the wonderful California Native Plants Garden in the San Francisco Botanical Garden, you have walked through his work. His studio is known for creating projects that balance clean lines in hardscape with flowing, drought tolerant and native plantings. A few minutes spent browsing their website reminds us of the importance and potential of simplicity.
