Refresh: Landscape Design Around the Globe

Spring is transforming our landscapes into flourishing environments full of new life. Landscape design around the globe is enhanced with beauty while fresh springs and waterfalls flow freely. Design Institute of San Diego decided to take a short recess from interior design and acknowledge the beauty in which we live. This blog post is a tribute to the spring season and a reminder that the landscape around us provides breathtaking inspiration. Allow the images in this post to take you around the world and give you the opportunity to revitalize and refresh.
