Landscape Gardening with CARE
Through combining workshop style assignments with research and “hands-on” experience, the Wright Scoop takes readers through a process that uses site plats to create landscape/gardens which respect an existing vista, preserving and enhancing its eco health. For any style landscape should not simply be a result of traditional design but be the right plant, installed in the right place at the right (optimal) planting season – creating eco-legacies of landscape green, sustainable urban/suburban communities which enhance green space for today and future generations.
Project Back Ground
The challenge for present-day homeowners, gardeners or Industry professionals is to be naturalists with a “waste not, want not” ecological commitment: become stewards of the land, caretakers for their environmental communities. Through ‘hands on’ research, Wright has identified tips and strategies which enable the who, why, where, what, how and when of landscape gardening –
Who: Understand the factors which influence a landscape gardening perspective; and then, describe it in terms of someone who presently does and/or desires to ‘dig in the dirt’.
Why: Define landscape gardens more in terms of a mission, a lofty perspective such as ‘green’ – ‘providing for present-day needs without sacrificing the future’.
Where: Location, location, location – conduct site analysis which identifies climate and physical constraints.
What: Combing the ‘who, why and where’ influence landscape garden plans, develop goal statements which describe a proposed site.
How: List activities that accomplish identified goals.
When: Using the ‘what and how’ activities, identify a recommended installation time-frame as well as recommended maintenance; and then, create a landscape gardening schedule.
Wright’s guidelines enable readers to become known as people who enable an eco-legacy of CARE – conservation, accountability, recovery and eco-efficiency.
Words of Praise for Wright’s Work
As an environmentalist and president of the Cornell Douglas foundation, I have been searching for new words to define those of us who advocate for protecting our natural resources for future generations. Wright’s word, eco-legacy is perfect: it encourages all of us to recognize that water, land, and air are not expendable luxuries, but critical resources we must sustain in our roles as responsible stewards.
– Ann Cornell, President Cornell Douglas Foundation www.CornellDouglas.org
Wright’s eco-chic advocacy embodies every aspect of the consumer education campaign we hope to inspire. For, our vision is to become a global organization that empowers people within communities to change society through the responsible creation and preservation of sustainable green spaces, such that the ever-increasing impacts of global warming in the world are measurably reduced; because Green Matters! – Den Gardner, executive director of Project EverGreen.
