From the overview Richard notices the lawn area, so they take a closer look. They have functions here that range in size from 25 to 150 people. They have weddings here, his son was baptized here, it's a place where people can
gather in the garden and enjoy it. It's a wonderful area, very open but at the same time, it feels intimate. People feel comfortable here. To Richard it feels like a center part of the garden, from here they can relate to the
rest of the garden. Gardeners are always thinking about creating functional, useful attractive spaces and this is the right way to do that. It's a simple, open, uncluttered area with some partial enclosures and a borrowed view.
It is a beautiful, functional space. This is a concept that would work in many of our yards.
