Program Description

Event Details

Landscape design is an investment. The right selection and balance of plants can enhance our enjoyment of our homes and neighborhoods, increase property values, and build resilience during erratic weather like floods and drought. Landscape designer Pennington Grey will share images and interventions from distinctive landscapes in our area to show interesting, innovative solutions that are as practical as they are refined and beautiful.   

Pennington Grey’s firm produces and maintains high-caliber, quality work in the Northeast, adhering to strict standards of best practices. He is on the board of the Ecological Landscape Alliance, and is known for the judicious use of native plantings and minimal chemical inputs for maximum visual and environmental benefit.   

This program is co-sponsored by New Canaan’s Pollinator Pathway partners: the Glass House, Grace Farms, New Canaan Beautification League, New Canaan Conservation Commission, New Canaan Department of Public Works, New Canaan Garden Club, New Canaan Land Trust, New Canaan Library, New Canaan Nature Center, Norwalk River Watershed Association, Planet New Canaan, and the Waveny Park Conservancy,
