Just finished reading “The Jewel Box Garden” A interesting and very opinionated look at Garden Design.

As someone who works in the Midwestern or Great Lakes part of the U.S. it is hard to look at a lot of west Coast pictures and not be a little envious of the climatic situation. Sure we can pull some of that plant combo stuff off, but for the limited growing season-it is, at times, hard to pull off the look.

We do what we can in the climates we live in and try to find ways to exploit the summer growing season. At any rate no matter where you design there is something in here you will be able to take away and use.

After all, isn’t that what we really are asking for as professionals-be it a lecture, or a book, or in attending a symposium???

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.
