Just because we have less water to irrigate our gardens doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy a lush, verdant looking landscape. This plant selection and design course will teach you the tricks to have your garden looking green and lovely year-round while cutting back on precious water.
Our new Garden Director, Richard Hayden, has had a 25-year landscape design career and served as a horticultural consultant for premier public and private gardens. His designs for outdoor living incorporate sustainable garden practices with an emphasis on sensory experiences through water, sound, movement and wildlife habitat. He was previously the Head Gardener at the Nature Gardens, a 3.5 acre wildlife habitat garden at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and served as the President of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers, Los Angeles District from 2010-12.
Richard has given talks on soil, sustainable practices, designing with natives, and habitat gardens for the Huntington Library and Garden, The Mediterranean Garden Society, Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden and the Los Angeles Arboretum among others. His gardens have been featured in many publications including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor and Martha Stewart Living.
