Resilient landscapes require synchronizing of planting design and management. A planting’s responsiveness to management and change over time critically affects its success and longevity. This session explores departures from the architectural model of design to open, iterative processes that offer greater resilience and more compelling, enduring designs.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss the vulnerabilities of traditional landscape design and management practices for providing landscape resilience and long-term viability of planting designs.
  • Consider how observations from landscape restoration, plant community maturation, succession, and dynamics can more fully inform planting designs and management for better outcomes.
  • Reframe the conventional architectural model of design to an alternative, iterative process promoting more constructive dialogue between long-term design intent and near-term stewardship.
  • Evaluate alternative ways to document short- and long-term management practices that allow for iterative, incremental processes and incorporate ecological principles.
