Redbud and TEND are pleased to announce our participation with the Native Garden Design Program of Wild Ones, a Wisconsin-based national advocacy and educational organization focused on native plants and environmentally sound landscape practices. We developed two templates for Mid-Atlantic native plant gardens by focusing on the Princeton, New Jersey area. The design packages include detailed planting plans, plant schedules as well as design intent statements that explain the design process from site analysis through design development, phasing and implementation. The Wild Ones program makes these design templates available to the public free of charge. Our full design packages including interviews with Lisa and Julie here….
