With Larry Weaner
All too often we design our gardens and landscapes with static compositions of carefully placed and managed plants. But our approach can be more dynamic—and arguably more rewarding—by building upon ecological processes as well as plants’ innate tendencies to reproduce and proliferate. Using examples from client projects and his property, Larry Weaner illustrates how this organic, give-and-take approach to design can result in low-maintenance, beautiful landscapes that marry human intent with the patterns and processes of nature.
Copies of Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change, which Larry coauthored with Thomas Christopher, will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture.
