Harness the power of design by fostering landscapes that mimic ecosystem patterns. Implementing these design principles contributes to a more diverse, balanced and bountiful garden. Kingwood’s Executive Director, Josh Steffen, will introduce the concepts of intentional plant communities and how these design approaches differ from traditional garden design.
Keynote Speaker: Austin Eischeid
Creating a Four-Season Garden – Learn how to create your own dynamic, four-season garden from the designer of the Meadow Garden area of Kingwood’s Perennial Garden, Austin Eischeid of Austin Eischeid Garden Design. By using the right combination of plants, gardeners can reduce watering and weeding as well as attract a wide variety of birds and other pollinators. Explore how planting long-lived perennials and grasses, adding spring bulbs, leaving seed heads standing, and designing with fall and winter interest can transform your garden.
