Notable design requires more than mixing and matching the attributes of plants, studying native habitats and ecosystems, and using a set palette of plants. Three landscape architects accomplished in both horticulture and ecology share some of their best sources of inspiration for innovative planting design.
1) Develop a visual vocabulary for seeing and recording patterns in landscape, art, and other forms of human expression.
2) See beyond the typical understanding of seasonal change and singular design elements to a larger source of inspiration for planting design.
3) Learn about the artist's approach to planting design, creatively and effectively combining horticultural and ecological perspectives.
4) Explore sustainable design as inspired by a full range of aesthetic possibilities, from native and natural to stylized and horticultural.
