War & Peace in the Garden: Designing with Companionable verses Combative Plants
with Vanessa Nagel APLD, NCIDQ
Every time we buy a new plant we purchase a potential friend or foe of the garden.Learn tricks of designing with plants that go beyond soil, exposure, and moisture levels to create peace among your plants to maximize the potential of every plant as well as the overall design of your garden.
Vanessa Nagel is the author of The Professional Designer's Guide to Garden Furnishings and Understanding Garden Design: The Complete Handbook for Aspiring Designers, both books from Timber Press. Vanessa's landscape design awards include a Merit Award from the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD) and an Award of Excellence from Sunset Magazine for their 2004 Landscape Design Competition.
Vanessa turned her global design experience as a commercial interior designer inside-out into landscape design. Today, after more than 35 years as a designer, she continues to be an award winning, eco-conscious garden designer and supports the design philosophies of integrating the exterior with the interior and "finding the common thread" when "weaving" a garden design. Vanessa is the owner of Seasons Garden Design LLC in Vancouver WA and the Communications/Outreach Director for APLD's international board.
Meetings are FREE to the public and members. No registration required.
