Wild and Neat: Bridging the Gap between Great Garden Design and Ecology

Our planet is rapidly losing its foundation of lifeā€”the very plants that sustain us and most other creatures on earth. We know that planting more ecological and functional plants in our gardens is an important part of the solution. However, many functional gardens that focus on ecological benefits often suffer for aesthetic challenges and fail to inspire the public. Great planting design is an essential part of the solution. Join us as we dig deeper into inspiring design principles derived from wild plant communities that resonate deeply within us and trigger stunning emotional responses. We will analyze archetypal landscapes and translate their principles into smaller planting spaces to help you create the ecological plant oasis of your dreams that will blow you away with stunning beauty!
