LANDSCAPE SKETCHES for my Tito/Engr. Agapito Valencia
It was I think November 2013 when he asked me to design the landscape features of the family’s resort/vacation place. The landscapes that time was purely natural and some are just randomly placed. I haven’t been taking up my specialty that time in Landscape Architecture, so I was surprised and half dumbfounded how to start.
The place has been our family’s place to reunite yearly. We swim, cook barbeques, sing along the karaoke, go fishing and run through the farm/resort/fish pond; because everything seems like to be there altogether.
I haven’t took any measurements nor photos (I left everything at home except for a towel). Because I wasn’t ready. All I needed while doing this was memories and previous family pictures. Honestly, it took me a week to start on the sketches because I did a research first on what plants are good for the place. But voila! 2 days for the sketches isn’t bad at all. I sent the scanned versions and explanations via e-mail. Because he was based at Guam. Hard copies are now in his hands also when he came home last Christmas.
