Plan your landscape with help from the Arboretum’s Native Landscape Design Center


There’s just enough time to complete your landscape design in time for the first phase of planting this fall. With fall’s cooler weather, now is a great time to think about how you want to enjoy your outdoor areas, and how to incorporate more beautiful, ecologically beneficial natives into your landscape.

Adkins Arboretum’s Native Landscape Design Center offers a unique Co-Design Service: four meetings with a professional designer who will help you craft your ideas into a well-planned landscape. The first meeting is at your home, with a walk-though and discussion about your goals. The next three meetings are held at Adkins, where you will develop your concept, select plants, and learn about how and when to plant.

The Co-Design Service includes help with county mitigation requirements, planting to reduce mowing, enhancing cherished views, screening not-so-cherished views, as well as taking a look at how you would like to enjoy your outdoor space more, and how to make that happen. With professional guidance, your native landscape is much more likely to succeed.

The timing is up to you, but the process typically takes 3-5 weeks. If you are interested or would like additional information, contact Chris Pax at to be on your way toward creating a more beautiful landscape.
