Delmar McComb has worked in,directed, and designed both public and private gardens throughout California. As both a certified permaculture designer and a practicing biody-namic farmer, McComb views gardens as an alchemical partnership between nature and the gardener. He feels that metamorphic themes inform the work as natural forms and regional ecosystems are studied, giving inspiration to the designs. In his gardens, a vibrant, self-contained, living organism of beauty is the ultimate goal for each site. Garden elements such as walls, paths, and plants are designed and used to transcend their functional roles and become artistic forms. This then raises the design to new levels of sophistication while remaining grounded in the needs and aspirations of outdoor living.
McComb is also an accomplished operatic tenor. He invites the passion and perfection of the genre to infuse his garden creations with theatrical verve.www.mccombassociates.com Back to all designers
