You’re thinking of integrating stone into a landscape project. Why? Does it serve a purpose, like a wall, walkway or water feature? Is it a structural element or art piece to let the eye rest from plant material? We will explore reasons to use stone in a project, when it makes sense and when it might not. Site integration, product selection, cost considerations, maintenance, and suitability to both the project and the environment will be among the factors considered in the program. We will also discuss customer’s expectations vs. that of the designers in collaborative circumstances.

After lunch, we’ll delve into an interactive design charrette and yard tour where participants will specify the stone elements for a proposed garden design project, along with Mr. Glasscock, and Marenakos support team, George Lightfoot and Chris Robinson.
