This lecture was presented during the landscape design conference “Garden Style” in August 2019, Vilnius, Lithuania.
In his 20 years as director of Hermannshof Gardens in Germany, Cassian Schmidt remains at the forefront of planting design, developing signature methods and using natural plant communities as models for sustainable, low maintenance plant combinations equally at home in private gardens and public landscapes.
The research at Hermannshof trial gardens includes plant ecology, performance and the coexistence of plants in designed plant communities. Cassian’ approach of using natural plant communities as a template for urban planting design can be generalized.
Hermannshof and other research institutions in Germany have developed standardized planting modules for various habitats for public green spaces or public gardens. Every ‘plant recipe’ is well balanced to ensure a long-lived dynamic plant community matched to the site with reduced maintenance.
In this lecture, Cassian shares his experience with this exceptional methodology.
