Waterwise gardening has come a long way in the past two decades. With an ever-expanding palette of beautiful adapted plants from which to choose, both native and exotic, now the challenge is designing attractive, sustainable, regionally attuned yet individualistic water-conserving gardens. How to combine home, personal style, and site into a resonant, unique expression? Lauren Springer Ogden will explore design possibilities, from traditional and cottage to naturalistic and eclectic. Each garden style’s unique design characteristics and well-suited plants round out the inspiring discussion.
