Event description

Description

Join the New Perennialist Tony Spencer in a two-part morning workshop exploring the new fundamentals of naturalistic planting design. In part one, Tony will guide us through the design work of leading figures like Piet Oudolf, Roy Diblik, and Cassian Schmidt to show the evolution of plant-driven landscape design. The second part is all about applying these methods and practices to residential scale gardens with a hands-on workshop to help you grasp the basics with a local spin. Walk away with an understanding of matrix template design.

We'll have snacks available offer lunch following the workshop.

Discover the aesthetic and ecological principles driving the New Perennial movement in naturalistic planting design. Learn about the design practices and methods championed by famed planting designer Piet Oudolf and his peers with an eye to broaden and transform your own approach to planting design, plant selection, installation and maintenance in home-based or community projects.
