The phrase, ‘The Devil is in the detail’ may have a few interpretations but when it applies to design, detail is critical to the end result. In short, details are the glue between the 'vision' and reality. Too often what’s left on the cutting room floor – yes, you guessed it. It’s all those little details holding the vision together; the big picture you initially fell in love with and vowed you would not let go of or live without.
As Mike Gayle reminds us, “In a relationship, the details are everything because they remind you - just when you need to be reminded the most - why you fell in love with someone in the first place.” It happens too often. People fall in love with a landscape vision and quickly forget the importance of certain details in pulling everything together. The worst experience – realizing it’s often too late or much more costly than the original expense to reinvent those critical details.
The glue holding most things in life together – well, yes, it’s in all those details. Know which ones are critical to your landscape vision. In the end, it’s those details that everyone notices, (including you) and ultimately makes all the difference. And there’s nothing more challenging than falling out of love and starting over again.
