The Garden of the Future: Re-imagining the American Yard
The American yard has been dominated by clipped foundation shrubs, groomed lawns, and trees with mulch circles. But a new aesthetic is emerging inspired by the way plants grow in nature—a softer, more lush vision of niche plants filling every layer and covering the ground. Join landscape architect and writer Thomas Rainer to explore the changing face of horticulture. This talk will explore how plants fit together in nature and how to use this knowledge to create gardens that are more satisfying, more resilient, and less work.
