Selling an idea to a client is always crucial. Woltz's storyline creates a script the client can embrace. Perhaps, for the millionaires that own these estates, sustainability is a vision they want to own, both metaphorically and physically.
Words matter. Woltz is absolute proof. For a large estate in Long Island, Woltz created 3 bands. The North American Band/Body (native plants), The Western European Band/Mind (formality and geometry) and the Asian Band/Spirit (wooded portion of the site)
