What Would Be In YOUR Dream Landscape?

Dream Residential Landscape Features Revealed in PPN Survey

Members of the Professional Practice Networks (PPNs) were recently surveyed on a number of topics, with the questions selected by PPN leadership. Responses were varied and included many insightful comments and suggestions, which will be shared and discussed with everyone here over the next few months, and also used to spark ideas for ASLA Online Learning webinars or posts for The Field.

You just won the lottery and are now designing your dream home: name one feature you absolutely need to have outside, to make your dream home complete…  

When we presented this scenario to PPN members, dream home wishes ranged from outdoor kitchens and infinity pools with extensive views of nature to more fanciful features, including Edwardian greenhouses and imaginative gazebos (double-decker gazebos, gazebos with hot tubs, and more!). And also, great soil—not too many prospective homebuyers probably ask about soil quality, but this obviously makes a huge difference to avid gardeners. Some members had a specific dream location in mind (for example, Lake Como), but most gave us a few key amenities they’d love to add to their homes.
