Recent Work

Food and Flora

At his home garden in Columbus, Ohio, Ethan has created a garden that allows for experimentation with a variety of vegetation while still retaining a sense of organization. The dynamic space features a large vegetable and cutting garden with fruit trees and vines. The back of the yard is screened with espaliered fruit trees and the side yard fence is a trellis for wine grapes. Within the coming year the project will continue as a patio and overhead grape arbor are added to the space.
