Accomplished landscape and garden designer, Harry is frequently in demand as a speaker and teacher. We are delighted that he has agreed to run this masterclass expanding on his book "Paradijselijke Tuinen" ("Paradise like Gardens")
Planting Design Masterclass with Harry Pierik
Join Harry Pierik for an inspirational day of planting design theory and practice. This masterclass will give you plenty of ideas about how to create harmonious and spectacular planting schemes. There will also be discussion about Harry's experiences in improving the soil, working with microclimates and designing for long term effects in specific situations.
Examples will be drawn from nine residential, public, domestic and urban projects. While Harry, naturally, works with native plants, the principles of planting design explored in the masterclass apply equally to exotic plants. You will see how Harry Pierik creates new striving habitats with native and exotic plants.

Masterclass with Harry Pierik – what a truly unique and important experience it was: to be a part of creative process, to witness the birth of ideas, to see concepts come alive as beautiful gardens of various kind. There was some magic of being let into the creative world of a gifted designer, whose gardens are like no other, and yet relying so solid on Nature.
The art of Harry Pierik, sophisticated, elegant and witty, laconic at the same time, can be compared only with itself! The day of Masterclass allowed us to learn, that it is so immeasurably more than about the gardener and his gardens, theories and practices of garden design, but it is also about illusion and reality, about inspiration and creation, it's about the Master and Marguerite! :)
