Bettina had a practical background as a gardener before studying landscape architecture at Munich University. She has given workshops in English at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania, USA and in Santiago, Chile. She also teaches in the department of landscape architecture at Geisenheim University.
Bettina will explain the very different possibilities and strategies one can use in designing with perennial plants. Bettina will compare and contrast the aesthetics and maintenance requirements of distinct perennial design styles – from monocultural and static to dynamic and diverse.
Workshop participants will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of these planning strategies and the consequences flowing from higher or lower maintenance.
How to adjust the plant selection according to the different patterns will be explained and how the pattern will influence the appearance and the atmosphere of the planting. With many practical examples of contemporary planting schemes and an introduction to the scientific background of habitat based planting design, the workshop will show you many possibilities to create beautiful, innovative and manageable landscapes.
