LJN Blog Posts

It has taken two years and some pretty sharp words on the Landscape Juice blog, but finally, the Association of Professional Landscapers has responded to a letter I wrote at the beginning of August. I understand that there have been a few people within the APL who have felt my comments personally which has never been the intention. I sincerely believe that now, more than any other time in the APL's history, is the time for action and if the organisation is going to still be here in the next twelve months it needs to react quickly. It is probably best that you read my letter and the official response from James Steele-Sargent on Landscape Juice but feel free to bring the debate back here for a longer discussion. Incidently, if there is anyone who feels that they have been treated unfairly or ignored by the APL in respect of membership then now is the time to pitch in to the debate. I will pass on details directly to the APL if there is a case of exclusion and James has promised to look into the matter personally.

Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
