The Liberated Landscape: A Lecture by Larry Weaner

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 – than that by taking advantage of plants’ natural abilities to reproduce and proliferate.

Learn how designer Larry Weaner combines design with the reproductive abilities of plants as well as ecological processes to create compelling, ever-evolving landscapes that bring new meaning to partnering with nature. Using examples from his own property as well as diverse client projects, Mr. Weaner shows how partnering with nature can result in compelling, low-maintenance landscapes that free plants to perform according to their natural abilities.

Larry recently authored Garden Revolution: How Our Landscapes Can Be a Source of Environmental Change with Tom Christopher (Timber Press, 2016). Their book received a 2017 Book Award from the American Horticultural Society.

This program is eligible for 2.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.
