How charming the view will be once the landscape is filled in; I think the idea of using Paint to envision your project and and to look ahead is so smart. What better way to wrap two loving visions into one and know ahead of time how well they will meld. Looks like you will be creating a tropical oasis that will delight and refresh all who see it.

Oh, I sure hope so! Before I settled on using paint, I used to try to pantomime my ideas by jumping from spot to spot waving my hands up in the air to indicate a tree or squatting low to indicate a short shrub. Needless to say, my sweetie prefers the paint program Smiling

Thumbs up What a happy dance around the gardens. I am sure he did not stop you right away ... even I smiled to be reminded of exploring a garden with such joy. Pleasant memories. Group hug
