Pursuing the Aesthetics of Wild Plantings

Keith Wiley


Looking carefully, evaluating and then accentuating various features of wild plantings and natural landscapes can result in spectacular garden effects. Selecting varieties or species of plants that will best represent those original features in a set of specific climatic conditions has resulted in plantings that are not copies but loose representations of wild groupings. Capturing some of the spirit of the wild and creating optimum growing conditions can require major preliminary land-forming but in so doing provides shelter, creates ambience and opens up exciting design possibilities. This is ecological planting that is decidedly aesthetics-led.
