Nate Miller is a brilliant designer with a vast knowledge of the natural world. He is intimately familiar with the relationship between plants and the wildlife they sustain. This knowledge of plants as a landscape architect extends to experience working with all aspects of soils, water needs, nutrition, color, texture, scale, growth habit, and maintenance. His particular knowledge of plants' relationships and groupings as found in nature is especially fascinating.
