Designing Plant Communities that Stand the Test of Time


Dig deeper into the art and science of planting design by understanding how native plants fill ecological and spatial niches in the landscape. Review the structure and composition of wild plant communities and learn how to incorporate those principles into your designs. Claudia West, coauthor of Planting in a Post Wild World, leads you through several hands-on exercises that help you visualize complex planting schemes, prepare installation guidelines for crews, and create adaptive management plans you can apply to upcoming projects. Prior experience with landscape design is recommended.
