Olivier Filippi has been running a nursery specifically focusing on drought-resistant plants for over twenty years. His frequent travels with his wife, Clara, to conduct research in the dry regions around the globe have also given him a high level of knowledge and expertise in the field. He is an acknowledged world authority on Dry Gardening where beauty is not compromised in the search for maximum water efficiency and appropriate plant choices. Olivier says "By working with - rather than against - drought, we can make remarkable gardens that are both beautiful and original." Olivier shows how to gain your freedom from the tyranny of the lawn
Climate change is a reality for us all, including gardeners, landscapers and professionals working in horticulture. The Filippi nursery, demonstration garden and online catalogue provide a world class resource and in Olivier we have an inspirational and generous teacher. We would like to publicly thank him and acknowledge his kind offer to share his talk on Alternative Lawns. Visit www.jardin-sec.com
