Landscape design inspiration begins with observation of diverse natural settings, systems, and functions. We can learn from landscapes such as layered woodlands, succession meadows, and oceanside areas to address a spectrum of gardening conditions. Together we will learn how to partner with natural systems for healthy, beautiful landscapes; mimic nature’s processes in our own gardens; and make ecologically sound plant choices that will attract pollinators throughout the seasons.
Marie Chieppo is a landscape designer who works with nature and interconnecting systems to enhance biodiversity and the overall health of the environment. With an initial background in public health policy and research, she has designed beautiful resilient landscapes for over twenty years through her business, EcoPlantPlans. Her most recent work focuses on sustainable solutions for plastic plant containers. Chieppo is an Ecological Landscape Designer and Accredited Organic Land Care Professional.
