15th Annual Winter Lecture Series: Robert Mallet: Gardens of Meaning - 153GAR801C
Some gardens stimulate our minds; others generate a more emotional reaction. For celebrated plantsman Robert Mallet, a landscape produces a liberating, therapeutic experience— evoked by biology, psychology, symbolism, and the classic principles of design. Drawing practical lessons with beautiful examples from his work at a historic French garden and the National Hydrangea Collection, Mallet shows how the designer's attention to every detail and nuance—in planting, décor, and geometry—creates a mosaic of highly personal responses in the viewer. In this way, the garden of meaning can become to gateway to humility, curiosity, and respect for the natural world.
