As landscape architects continue to try design landscapes that provide instant impact, they also strive to achieve something new and different. This approach has led to some obscure varieties being included in planting schedules, and, at times, in numbers that aren’t available with only a few weeks notice.
By using planning and foresight on a landscape project, especially when it comes to green stock, amazing results can be achieved. But it takes time! Availability of propagation stock must first be considered, then growing time must be accounted for. Growing times range from weeks to months, or in some cases, years, depending on the species and size.
It can be challenging for everyone involved in a project to understand that plants are not like nuts and bolts, tiles or mulch. Sometimes plants just aren’t available, and when a plant isn’t available it may take months before it is ready. The result is a compromised version of a design using substitutions in stock or size. However, these issues can be mitigated by planning ahead and getting the desired species in the required sizes growing well ahead of time.
