Richard Hartlage has spent 20 years managing private and public gardens and is now a partner at AHBL in Tacoma, Washington, managing the Landscape Architecture Department. He has written many articles on landscape design written and photographed Bold Visions for the Garden and photographed four additional books. He hybridized the Raulston allspice that bears his name; Calycanthus ×raulstonii 'Hartlage Wine' released from the JC Raulston Arboretum. He is currently working on private and public projects on both the east and west coasts including the new Herb Garden at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and the Chihuly Project, an indoor/outdoor retrospective of Dale Chihuly's glass art in Seattle, Washington. His residential projects have been featured in countless magazines and books and his hallmark are forming gardens with strong, livable outdoor architecture and rich plant palettes. He will reflect on his career managing public and private gardens and show a wide array of projects that are built and in design. With wit, he will share impressions on a twenty year career, share his philosophy of design, and give plenty of practical, hands-on experience maintaining, designing, and building gardens for a wide range of clients.
