(Webinar) Materiality in Gardens: Design & Environmental Stewardship
Wednesday, June 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am$15.00 – $25.00
Join us for a lecture with Jennifer de Graaf, landscape architect (Lic. #5461), to learn about the sustainable choices you can make when selecting and using recycled materials in your garden. Focusing on the non-plant elements in garden design, we will discuss how the selections we make for our outdoor spaces have farther-reaching implications we should be aware of. What do you need to consider when removing or changing the older stuff (paths, furnishings, etc.) with what you already have? We will talk through an example thought path for these decisions and how to choose a material that is right for your application. The goal is to be aware of the lifecycle of a product or material, its environmental relationships, and durability and taking into consideration the ways a recycled material may or may not provide the aesthetic desired. With thoughtful attention to the design and construction of garden elements, recycled materials can go from looking haphazard to intentional.
