Lost Hollow – Planting Concepts and Recommendations Peter Grimaldi and Kara Newport General Concepts Submitted here are three thematic areas: Formal Transition, Shrub Borders and Woodland . We expect the planting plan to include some repetitive characteristics and/or specific elements to create continuity throughout. Our intention is not to design the planting plan, but communicate general planting concepts that capture the energy of the Garden and support the existing collection while creating a new space with its own identity. It is also important to note that the planting plan should reflect Dan’s quirky character and include otherwise inexplicable elements. This contrast could be accomplished, simply, through color combinations. Formal Transition – The Commons, entrance to the Moon Keep, Sunken Pond and Hillside Theatre. Plantings transition from the formal pergola and Canal Garden to a landscape where formality has dissolved over time. Broken lines and gnarled, weathered plant forms create the shadow of once stately allées and hedgerows. Use plant form and placement to create loose formality. Upright Cypress combined with rounded forms (Little King River Birch), as well as tight weeping forms (weeping redbud) Select plants with an old, or Old World feel – ‘antique-y’. Consider use of vines, such as old and gnarled wisteria or rose (possible combination with light posts). Possibly use color to represent Dan’s whimsy, expressed through contrasting foliage among otherwise more formal selections. Shrub Borders – Fireplace Cave, Aviary, Fountain Ruin. Shrub borders continue the dissolution of formality as plantings fade into the woodland and represent a natural succession. Utilize mounding, sprawling plant material. Big sweeps and bold color statements are ideal. Shrubs planted in the existing collection serve as backdrops or isolated specimen, not natural sweeps. Shrub borders should integrate ancillary concepts such as plants that attract birds around the aviary. Woodland – Cruck -frame Cottage, Ramble Rocks, Walnut Ring, Throne Room. Plantings create an open, airy understory with deep sight lines. Shade-loving species capitalize upon one of the only true north facing slope included on the Master Plan. Large sweeping masses continue to make simple, bold statements. Represent true native species, but utilize cultivars improved for aesthetics and performance. Plant selections include the entire scope of ecological forest succession. The planting plan should include the entire viewshed and create a competitive understory. Woodland perennials should be selected for high durability.
