Stylized Dynamic Plant Communities for the Urban Environment

Cassian Schmidt


The research at Hermannshof trial gardens includes plant ecology and performance and the coexistence of plants in designed plant communities. Stylized North American prairie and Eastern European steppe vegetation as well as Mediterranean shrub steppe have been modified and enhanced for aesthetic and practical demands. Cassian Schmidt will share economic yet ecologically based planting and maintenance techniques that do not sacrifice aesthetic qualities, making them extremely useful for sustainable public greening projects.
