A photographic presentation of gardens created by Blasen Landscape Architecture.

In 1993, he co-founded, with his wife, Silvina, design studio Blasen Landscape Architecture in San Anselmo, California. The design team has created landscapes for places of worship, schools, corporate offices, and wineries, but its main focus is large residential gardens, for which it has garnered top American landscape architecture awards.
