Scoville Memorial Library Program: The Self Proliferating Landscape--Salisbury


38 Main St., Salisbury, CT 06068. Phone: 860-435-2838.

Scoville Sustainable Backyard Series will feature noted landscape designer and horticulturist Larry Weaner. He has been creating native landscapes throughout the eastern United States since 1977. His firm Larry Weaner Landscape Associates has a national reputation for combining ecological restoration with the traditions of fine garden design. Weaner explores the principles and protocols for creating dynamic, ecologically rich landscapes where nature does much of the "planting." Detailed case studies will demonstrate how practical plant proliferation strategies can be applied at diverse scales, from the intimate garden to large multi-acre landscapes. Nature has spent thousands of years perfecting plants' abilities to reproduce and proliferate, and yet we often go to great effort individually placing every plant in our designed landscapes. Weaner's philosophy is that land owners and gardeners can capitalize on the reproductive abilities of native plants and actively encourage planted plus existing species to colonize our landscapes. He will be speaking at the town hall in Salisbury, CT on Saturday April 16 at 4:00 p.m. Admission is free.
