Through his years of documenting some of the world's best gardens, Stephen Orr has developed a sense of what a 21st-century garden should be: manageable, visually pleasing, and most of all, environmentally responsible. He will present a wide array of gardens throughout America that have been scaled back and simplified without compromising aesthetics. The innovative design solutions that link these gardens—including several from the Austin area—will inspire gardeners of all experience levels.
