Presented by Larry Weaner, Landscape Designer; Sponsored jointly by Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens and Radnor Memorial Library
All too often in our gardens and landscapes we think of static compositions of carefully placed and managed plants. But our approach can be more dynamic – and arguably more rewarding – than that by taking advantage of plants’ natural abilities to reproduce and proliferate. Learn how designer
Larry Weaner combines design with the reproductive abilities of plants as well as ecological processes to create compelling, ever-evolving landscapes that bring new meaning to partnering with nature. Using examples from his own property as well as diverse client projects, Larry will share how this give-and-take approach can result in compelling, low-maintenance landscapes that free plants to perform according to their natural abilities and liberate people from having to cater to their landscapes’ every need. Larry Weaner has been creating native landscapes since 1977. His firm, Larry Weaner Landscape Associates, has a national reputation for combining ecological restoration with the traditions of garden design. The firm’s work has received numerous awards, been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Garden Design, American Gardener, and Landscape Architecture Magazine, among other publications, and been included on tours with The Garden Conservancy, The Cultural Landscape Foundation, and the American Horticultural Society. Larry lectures actively throughout the U.S., and recently coauthored Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change (Timber Press, 2016).
