How many living layers are in your garden?  During Colonial Williamsburg’s 69th Garden Symposium, Rick Darke and Doug Tallamy, authors of "The Living Landscape," share their expertise on using plants to create and maintain a layered landscape.   Planting in layers allows gardeners to take full advantage of their space and include a diversity of plants that provide beauty and benefit wildlife. The authors and other experts will suggest design strategies for effectively transitioning from one layer to the next and recommend plant selections that range from tall shade trees to mid-size shrubs to low-growing perennials and groundcovers.  Maintenance tips for all plants will be shared in hopes that you will be encouraged to create a home landscape that is satisfying on many levels.
