Botany For Design

My love for plants and landscapes originated in my childhood in Africa. 

A traditional Botannical training introduced me to the wealth of plant diversity and the idea that plants have an important and specific function in the environment.    Their place in the landscape,  stems from what they are able to do, physiology, and how they interact with the landscape, ecology.  This blog is a complement to a course in landscape design where we explore aspects of eco-physiology and taxonomy relevant to landscape design.

Using the local flora of Central Texas, the goal is to connect science, application and aesthetics in order to promote the creation of ecologically intelligent landscapes in our increasingly urban world.
