Future Green team visits Glover Perennials


The FGS design team took a field trip to Glover Perennials, a wholesale grower on Long Island, as part of the firm’s technical review day. As a landscape architecture and urban ecology practice, we believe it is imperative to study, investigate and push boundaries through detailed understanding of plants. The day included interaction and a tour of the nursery with owner, Jim Glover, who graciously shared his expansive reservoir of botanical knowledge- giving insights into trends and changing cultures of planting in addition to explanations on ecological relevance of species. Such visits are critical to experimenting and expanding our botanical knowledge base, as well as in bridging the gap between the design, operation and performance of a landscape.
