Alumni Connection President Yvonne English Will Be Lecturing on Planting Design at the 2012 Long Beach Landscape Expo

December 2, 2012 in Uncategorized by admin

On October 10th and 11th the 2012 Long Beach Landscape Expo will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center.  This show is billed as the Number One Landscape Trade Show and Educational Conference in the West. Landscape Expo has been held since 1960 and is the longest running landscape trade show in the Southwestern United States.

Last year more than 3,500 industry professionals filled a twice-expanded, but still sold out, exhibit hall featuring 265 exhibitors in 557 booths. This year the event is expected to be even bigger.


Among the highlights of this event are the educational seminars. Alumni Connection President, Yvonne English (’07) will be presenting a seminar on The Planting Design Process on October 11th from 12:30 to 2:30 PM.
The description of this seminar follows:

“Plants are not just ornamental elements in the landscape, but, in fact, important building materials with a purpose. And landscape designs are often evaluated not just by the hardscape, but by the condition and appropriateness of the plants used on a project. This seminar will look at designing plants as both an art and a science. We will review design principles, plants as design elements and discuss the plant design process. Then we will review site requirements, three considerations for plant selection: functional, ecological and aesthetic. Finally we will show plant uses, and even a few planting mistakes.”
