    What Is a Bioregion? And Why Does It Matter in Garden Design?

    Bioregions are important for shaping our gardens in sustainable and eco-friendly ways and for helping us find our place in the world. Bioregionalism is an interesting concept that could help us move toward a human society that works in better harmony with the natural world. Thinking in terms of bioregions rather than nations or other political divisions can help inform best practice in societal organizations. But what I will write about in this article is why recognizing our bioregions can also be very important in garden design. What Is a Bioregion? A bioregion is an area where boundaries are defined not by arbitrary political or national boundaries, but by natural…

    Why a glasshouse is the zenith of garden design | Gardening advice

    This weekend, wandering with a good mate through the spectacular labyrinth of foliage-filled corridors that are the glasshouses of Cambridge University Botanic Garden, we got to talking about a perpetual hypothetical conundrum of mine. If either of us – as tropical plant nuts – were to have unlimited funds, would we prefer to have a vast glasshouse in which to live out our horticultural fantasies or would it just make sense to get a garden in the tropics? As someone who’s been obsessed since childhood with the mysterious, storybook atmosphere that rainforest species are uniquely able to create, my answer to this one has always been a surprise, even to…

    Ruud Kleinpaste’s guide to garden design

    Just looking at how nature operates, we can find quite a few ‘do-s’ and ‘don’ts’ when it comes to designing a garden or operating such a space.  Here are my top tips – some of which are also reflecting my personal loves and hates:  Go with the Flow – curved lines in landscapes! In nature there are very few straight lines (if any!). The old French and Dutch Gardens (17th century etc) look spectacular but remember, they were designed to show off the wealth of the landowners, especially those that were driving the economy…economists have never been able to work with nature.  Minimise the amount of hard surfaces on the ground. Water that falls from the sky…
