Conventional structured landscapes are giving way to looser, more naturalistic designs based on the existing landscape’s particular potential. Using images of his own six-acre garden, which—like horticulture itself—strikes a balance between art and science, Duncan Brine, a principal landscape designer at Garden Large, presents an approach that elicits responses from the site rather than imitating or imposing a traditional concept or style.
Instructor: Duncan Brine
“Detailed and well prepared information on a unique style.”
“Breaking ‘traditional’ rules can be liberating and open up alternative possibilities.”
“Interesting approach, lots of experience, sense of humor…”
