Video presentation by renowned Landscape Architect & long time NPQ member, Lawrie Smith AM.
This presentation was part of the recent Australian Native Plants Society Australia Biennial Conference hosted by The Australian Plants Society – NSW
Presentation topic: Garden design – The past informs the present and the future!
There are three themes:
1. Building on Country: What key principles, derived from the First Nations peoples’ traditional knowledge and understanding of the unique Australian environment, and specifically the flora, should be valued and applied to inform planning and design of sustainable native landscapes and gardens of today and the future?
2. Australian garden style: Native garden photographs from the Garden Design Study Group show the design expertise of each gardener and the differing garden character from one region to another. There can be no single ‘Australian Style’. What are the implications?
3. Promotion of native flora: Our plant societies are very involved and accomplished in spreading the message about native plants – but are we missing ways to inform and communicate more successfully with the general gardening community to increase their acceptance of native plants in residential garden design?
