Aesthetic Pruning and Design for the Native Garden

Rather than pruning plants into abstract forms, learn how the Japanese design with local plants to create some of the most natural looking gardens in the world. Leslie Buck will pull from her memoir, Cutting Back—My Apprenticeship in the Gardens of Kyoto, to illustrate how the Japanese use primarily a native plant palate, how the gardens of Japan evoke the wild landscape, and the tricks Japanese garden craftsmen use to design with native plants over time. She will show images of Kyoto gardens in historic buildings, monasteries, private homes and an emperor’s villa.
