Landscape Gardens of CARE -
“Eco-sustainable spaces and the plants that inhabit these spaces,” says Wright, “are not simply a result of lifestyle choices but reflect how we feel about the environment. So, in addition to plant sustainability, what makes the American Beauties Native Plant collection different? These plants are identified to flourish in multiple climate zones, recognized as enabling eco sustainable habitats; and through their vibrant characteristics, have intrigued mankind for centuries.” Whether an experienced landscape professional or novice homeowner, Wright’s advocacy challenges all to not simple identify plants that survive but thrive. “For,” says Wright, “any style landscape should not simply reflect traditional design concepts but be a result of the right plant, installed in the right place at the right (optimal) planting season - creating a legacy of green, healthier urban/suburban communities.”
About Wright –
As a hands-on landscape gardener who participates in nation-wide regional plant testing, Wright gained familiarity with programs such as the ‘Southern Living Plant Collection’, ‘Proven Winners’, ‘Plants that Work’ and many more. While a plant proven to enable landscape gardens of CARE could be identified by any one of these programs, it is spotlighted by Wright for its ability to inspire people to CARE – have an eco connection of conservation, accountability, recovery and efficiency to the living green that surrounds them.
