American Horticultural Society’s
The American Gardener Magazine
This fall, the American Horticultural Society’s The American Gardener magazine is slated to feature Duncan Brine’s article and photographs about “a naturalistic garden”.
The article and the Brine Garden’s 20th Anniversary both honor Doug Tallamy’s groundbreaking book, Bringing Nature Home: How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants (2009 Timber Press).
Twenty years ago, Duncan Brine found direction in moving away from the status quo of traditional gardens and toward a naturalistic garden’s engaging creative process and philosophy. A naturalistic garden combines a gardener’s needs and desires with nature’s dictates; its inherent beauty follows the suggestion of landscape conditions. It’s not a pre-meditated design forced upon the landscape; rather, a naturalistic garden is itself, and looks like itself, without affect. In his article, Brine discusses naturalistic techniques and pragmatic approaches that help you create your own naturalistic garden.
Among other notable achievements, photographer Rob Cardillo has received a Gold award for best photography from the Garden Writers of America .
The American Gardener is now available both digitally and in print to members of the American Horticultural Society.
