We have been planting a lot around our Blanco stone maze.

The construction of a labyrinth like the one we have created right inside the Blanco valley follows certain criteria and ideas in various realms such as the artistic, aesthetic and downrightly practical. Putting plants around and inside such a stone structure is not just a matter of taste and indeed, we conceive our maze as a garden composed by stone and plants, combined to produce a certain effect.

Plants also turn the labyrinth into a more pleasant space: We have commented in another article that it is possible to actually camp inside its walls, and thus we believe that it is better to lie down with a sleeping bag on top of grass than rocks or dust. It is better to have some shading than nothing, and tha tplants stop a little bit the wind that comes there from various directions. We also want that our labyrinth, construted with local, totally natural nmaterials, one day becomes assimilated into the landscape.

The odds of doing something similar to traditional gardening are slim up there because of various reasons, but year after years ome plants continue to grow and we slowly get closer to our goals. The tools that we use are the same employed to explore: piolets, survival knifes, pocket knifes, stones and so on but they are perfectly good for our work, given the circumstances.

We essentially use the empirical method to constantly reevaluate our projects, ideas and our actual work: After doing some gardening one year we wait for twelve months and then see what works better, then repeating it.
