Monday, September 9, 2019Dry Gardens: High Style for Low Water Gardens
At our September 9, 2019 meeting, we will hear from Daniel Nolan, of Daniel Nolan Design in San Francisco, an authority on dry gardens and the author of Dry Gardens: High Style for Low Water Gardens, recently published by Rizzoli Press. He will share his techniques for transforming landscapes of any size into a modern dry garden. Nolan is known for creating sophisticated combinations of the familiar and the foreign.
His gardens have been described as both expressive and refined. He has worked on projects ranging from living walls for homes and restaurants, to transformations of residential gardens, to the planting design for the Powell Street Parklet. Nolan’s work has also appeared in Martha Stewart Living, Elle Décor, Condé Nast Traveler, Sunset, and San Francisco Magazine. His work now appears in some of the Bay Area's most beautiful homes and properties.
