The use of plant species from native plant communities is an emerging element of landscape design that focuses on learning lessons from plants’ native growing environments. Species from very difficult growing conditions can be particularly useful in built landscapes. SUNY ESF applied these concepts to the Gateway Center garden using plants native to two New York communities – the alvar grassland community and the East Ontario dune community. Come hear about this case study, its successes and its challenges, and how these concepts are being applied to other campus building projects.
