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—by taking advantage of natural plant abilities to reproduce and proliferate. Learn how designer Larry Weaner, FAPLD, combines design with the reproductive abilities of plants and ecological processes to create compelling, ever-evolving landscapes that bring new meaning to partnering with nature. Using examples from his own property and diverse client projects, Weaner 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, FAPLD, founded Larry Weaner Landscape Associates in 1982 and established New Directions in the American Landscape in 1990. He is nationally recognized for combining expertise in horticulture, landscape design and ecological restoration. His design and restoration work spans across the U.S. and in the U.K. and has been profiled in numerous national publications. His book Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change (Timber Press, 2016) received an American Horticultural Society (AHS) Book Award in 2017. In 2021 he received AHS’s Landscape Design Award and the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) Award of Distinction.
