The Designer's Eye
Drawing on her experiences designing more than 45 New York City public spaces, and a lifetime of challenges in her own garden, Lynden B. Miller shares how she looks at a sit—what's there and what could be—and how she visualizes what plants are needed to achieve her goals. Her training as a painter is a key to educating her eye for garden design. Her lushly illustrated talk will showcase practical ideas for successful gardens that look good in every season. The purpose of her work is to give city dwellers beauty and pleasure in well-maintained public places.

Lynden B. Miller rescued and restored The Conservatory Garden in Central Park in 1982. Believing that good public open spaces can change city life, she has since designed scores of gardens and parks, including Bryant Park, Madison Square Park, Wagner Park in Battery Park City, and the perennial borders at NYBG. Her book, Parks, Plants and People: Beautifying the Urban Landscape, won the American Horticultural Society 2010 National Book Award.
