Integrating native plants and designing for biodiversity is becoming more of a common practice than an industry trend. This symposium will offer new and innovative sustainable design and maintenance strategies to take your home garden or professional work to the next level. Join industry experts as they share practical and scalable lessons from the field representing a diverse range of natural landscapes and human environments.

We’ll explore the latest research from the University of Delaware, including case studies from award-winning public gardens and museums. Designers will share the challenges faced and solutions discovered working on projects with leaders like Roy Diblik, Piet Oudolf, and Cassian Schmidt. Learn how to create masterpieces by leveraging block and matrix plantings that maximize the competitiveness and characteristics of native species. Lectures will reimagine traditional landscapes with native plants and offer the latest in ecologically focused management strategies.
