Meaning in Planting Design
There is a growing trend in landscape architecture when it comes to planting design. More and more, Landscape Architecture Magazine and landscape design social media feeds are filled with sublime, flowing meadows, containing a symphony of softly mounding grasses, interspersed with a wild yet refined mixture of seasonal perennial interest. Yet, more substantive than trends of previous eras, this movement embodies a shift in our relationship with place and nature. It signifies a yearning for meaning and context within the broader landscape.
