Paul Comstock

Born into a family of gardeners and horticulturists, Paul Comstock has spent his life around plants. Not only is he an expert horticulturist, he is also a trained musician and artist. He has a true love for the language of numbers, problem-solving and design. His designs draw inspiration from life experience, art, and music. Just as he considers the individual notes and rhythms that make up a melody when writing a song, Comstock considers the chemistry and science of each plant in order to compose landscapes that are both evocative and horticulturally sound.
