Each site presents a different set of challenges and opportunities when it comes to planting design, and Bluegreen responds with an intensive study of native and naturalized plant communities partnered with innovative design thinking. Recent projects have spurred investigations into plant sociability, root system interaction, and deployment of landscape archetypes for different programmatic and experiential functions. The varying microclimates of the Mountain West offer endless inspiration and opportunity to explore new planting ideas. Resources for planting theory and information:
