Exposing Layers and Meaning in 21st Century Garden Design – GLDA Seminar FEB’ 2014

For a day of garden design inspiration and shared passion for all things gardening, I can recommend attending the forthcoming GLDA Seminar that will be held on February 8th 2014 at The Crowne Plaza Conference Centre Northwood.

The Garden and Landscape Designers Association have put together an unmissable line-up of speakers who share not only a breath-taking knowledge of their subject, but also a passion for what they do.

Attention to detail is a theme that runs through the day’s line-up. Landscape Architect, Feargus McGarvey’s title is ‘Observation’ where he reflects on spatial relationships and site context that inform the design process, from concept to detail. Plantsman and garden designer, Oliver Schurmann, in his talk entitled ‘The Feeling of Space’ shares with us his passion for plants and planting design, the pleasures of seasonal transitions and the appreciation of plants on an individual level. The relationship between the plant and the designer is also important for sculptor and topiary expert Jake Hobson. In ‘The Changing Face of Topiary’ he explains how his organic topiary responds to the characteristics of each plant to create unique living sculptures. Writer historian and critic Tim Richardson, will round off the day with his thought-provoking views on modern design in ‘The New English Garden.’

Whether you have a love of plants or your interest is in garden or landscape design, this seminar will inspire and inform you.
