We grow many of the plants we use for our landscape design projects. We’ve assembled communities of native plants – and other favorites – which enjoy local conditions. Our shrubs and trees have natural outlines. They don’t have the “shorn” look of commercial nurseries.
A Few Garden Large Projects
Duncan Brine, Princeton ‘79, is a principal landscape designer at GardenLarge and a landscape design instructor at the New York Botanical Garden.
“Mr. Brine calls it “structured naturalism.” And it is, of course. But there is also drama at play here: The plants have been given unexpected roles, in unusual places, and the delight comes in seeing what they will do on this ever-changing stage.”
“Mr. Brine shapes a landscape as a filmmaker would a story, conceiving it as an unfolding narrative, he said, “only discovered by moving through space.” With a cameraman’s eye, he knows how to take the evocative long view of a wild black locust grove against the marsh, for example, as well as the close-up. He sees how one plant influences the shape or color of another in its proximity, with its shade or by leaning this way or that.”
