About Water Gardens: Virtual Lecture with Trevor Smith
Water Gardens The Voice of the Landscape
A virutal lecture with landscape designer Trevor Smith
Water is the reason for all life on this planet. If Nature laughs in flowers, she speaks to us through water. Water gardens no mater what size are so much more than just beautiful. Water gardens open a whole new plant pallet to the avid gardener. We all know the sound of water relieves stress but did you know the sound of water is one of the best ways to drown out traffic noise, the sound of water also calls all types of birds to your yard. Beyond the obvious beauty a water feature brings to our landscape, watergadens when properly constructed are a way of replacing our diminishing wetlands.
Trevor Smith is an award winning regenerative landscape designer, specializing in Green Infrastructure, soil reclamation, native plant design, habitat creation and nutrient dense urban crop production. Smith will teach you about all types of water gardens as well as how to “Tune a stream” which is how to design a stream to create all the different pitches found in nature. Water gardens are a perfect addition to every garden, find out which one is right for you.
This program takes place on Zoom. Registered participants will be sent the Zoom link the day before the workshop.
Program participants may also opt for an in-person tour of the wetlands garden onsite at Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens at 10am on Saturday 7/10.
Space is limited; pre-registration required.
