Leah Blanton will be discussing the unique opportunity the PHS Public Landscapes team has in Philadelphia to infuse underutilized sites with interesting plantings, push a naturalistic aesthetic that highlights natives and biodiversity, and create dynamic spaces for people to interact with the city in new ways.
She will provide an overview of the teams’ projects, the design approach to public planting and installation, and discuss the staple plants that her team relies on to perform in tough conditions.
