The Integral Parts of a Whole


Unless we’ve been holed up without a calendar, we can all sense that the season of spring is coming soon. With that comes an urgent need to redecorate the outside rooms. Are outdoor projects on your spring list? Today’s quote and lesson comes from the words of St. Francis Assisi.  

“He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”

So here’s the Annie-urism of this post. How does this quote relate to your outdoor projects? The integral parts of a landscape vision always include all three; labor, craftsmanship and artistry. It’s what creates a balanced yet beautiful outdoor vision. And if your landscape requires building a team of talent requiring all these integral parts, if you leave out the artist, you leave out the heart of the garden and the outdoor living space.
