Upcoming GPPA Speaker Meeting

McElreath Hall
Atlanta History Center

Thomas Rainer
Author of Grounded Design blog,
Landscape Architect, Washington, DC

"Designed Plant Communities"
The Barbara Allen Memorial Lecture


Thomas Rainer

While native plants grow in popularity, there is surprisingly little information about how to design with them in gardens and landscapes. Throughout the country, examples abound of well-intentioned rain gardens, pollinator gardens, or native restorations that become unsightly and invaded with weeds after a few years. Join landscape architect and writer, Thomas Rainer to learn how an understanding of naturally occurring plant communities can reshape traditional landscape design aesthetics and offer new ways of looking at the native versus exotic debate. Specific strategies for adapting wild plant communities to a variety of urban and suburban settings will be explained, demonstrating ways to achieve a new level of aesthetic richness and ecological functionality in our designed landscapes.
