Here are a few basic Bertisms. They're not always right, but they commonly are. If you learn them, your designs should be at least more functional, if not better. Hopefully they'll make you look smarter. Didn't help Bert, but it may help you.
Feel free to add more of your own, you can even call them after you. Johnisms or Judyisms.

6. No water= No Plants.
If you plant redwoods in Barstow in June and do not water them, they will die. You want to water about 18 inches deep and let the top inch dry out before doing it again. You can do that the first year. You might get by watering until the first rain and then quitting. We've done no-water plantings before, but they have to be done in winter and are risky.

7. People walk in straight lines.
Do not make curvy walkways and paths unless you're planning a sobriety check point.
A string line needs to be strung between the two points people are going to be walking to and fro; as long as the path stays under the string you'll be fine.
