Influential Designers: Dan Pearson

Dan Pearson is first and foremost a great plantsmen. His approach to design is still evolving, and the emphasis on how many plants are used in a specific design is becoming more restrained. In the past, he may have used twenty different species for a particular design, and today he may only choose ten. As a part of the New Naturalism movement, he sets out to blur the boundaries between garden and landscape.
