Wild & Neat: Bridging the Gap between Design and Ecology

Plants serve as the very foundation of life on our planet. Planting more native plants in our gardens is ecologically important for a more sustainable future. However, many native plant gardens suffer aesthetically and fail to inspire the public. Great planting design is an essential part of the solution and can be achieved! Dig deeper with Claudia in this lecture as you:

  • Understand the aesthetics and functional challenges surrounding native planting

  • Learn inspiring design principles derived from wild plant communities

  • Understand how to translate classic landscape design into smaller garden spaces to help you create the ecological plant oasis of your dreams
