When I first developed the Avant concept in 1985, I knew Avant could make a significant contribution to Midwest garden design. Having visited many countries with rich histories in garden design, I came to realize that our region tended to lack the concepts of garden rooms, outdoor niches, vistas, and natural landscapes. Many of the homes and businesses I visited when I started had a few shrubs and maybe some yews and arbor vitae as foundation plantings, along with geraniums and daylilies for color. I saw immediately that the Midwest garden was missing an essential element – namely the ground layer of perennial plants to add richness, vibrancy, and year-round interest to the garden. The goal of Avant was then, and still is now, to use all of the colors, surfaces, textures and emotions in our tool box to create artistic, well-layered landscapes that lift up the spirits of those who live with our designs.
