Dan Pearson is a British landscape designer, horticulturalist, gardener and writer. His work is characterised by an innate sensitivity to place, an intuitive and light-handed approach to design, bold and painterly naturalistic plantings and deep-rooted horticultural knowledge. Dan trained in horticulture at RHS Gardens’ Wisley, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Jerusalem Botanical Gardens and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He has been practising as a landscape and garden designer since 1987. Dan Pearson Studio works with engaged clients around the world on projects from small, urban courtyards to urban realm landscapes, from rural estates, public parks and resorts to therapeutic, healing and educational gardens. The common thread is a shared desire to create beautiful environments which bring people close to nature and experience. With every decision grounded in an acute sense of place and a deep understanding of how natural environments affect human emotions.
Dan’s talk will reflect on public projects and reveal their sensitive, robust, and responsive approaches to landscaping urban environments and the impact of planting on places, people and planet. With insight on how landscapes and gardens can be planted to become more nurturing and sustainable within a changing climate and through changing seasons.
