As professionals focused on improving the landscape, we design to meet the needs of our clients and the environment. In doing so, we must select appropriate plants available for the region that are best suited for the climate. Likewise, we take pride in creating a signature graphic style that allows us to tell a story to our clients, allied professionals, and sometimes, even in publications. In this hands-on session, join Jane Beggs-Joles as she discusses what to look for when selecting plants and their providers to develop a solid plant palette, and Tony Kostreski, ASLA, as he demonstrates how to create custom plant libraries.
