The Art of Shaping the Land
There is a special type of artistry at work at Edwards Place this week. These artists wear hard hats and safety vests and shape and mold the earth with giant machines, instead of paintbrushes. The canvas is dotted with protected trees and the natural curves and undulations of the existing soil and organic matter. This "shaping" process is a careful mix of mathematics, science, and skill that takes years to hone, and the result of which will be a beautiful and beneficial feature for the property and the homeowners. A dry creek bed feature will emerge on the canvas to efficiently manage rainwater for the entire community. It will be edged with indigenous grasses and plants and the river rock will be hand-placed to create a calming and natural landscape.
