Nature-Inspired Design for Home Gardens

With Dean Riddle

Cost: Free to Members, $10 for Non-Members

Catskill-based garden designer Dean Riddle strives to get plants to "lie down together" within the exuberant mixed plantings that he loves to create. More than any other factor, his lifelong observations of diverse, natural plant communities have inspired his aesthetic approach.  He strives to harmonize form, texture and habit far more than designing by flower color. If a plant appears happy and settled and somewhat naturalistic--if rhythm and repetition rule--then color will take care of itself.

Join us at the Arboretum for Dean's captivating lecture regarding garden design inspired by nature's patterns and growth. Dean knows the Arboretum well, as he is the co-designer of the East Meadow Hedgerow and the West Meadow Spiral.

In case of inclement weather, the workshop will be held on March 24th at 10am. Please check this page for updates.
