Webinar: Designing Naturalistic Landscapes & Water Features

Wed, May 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 1:00 pm EDT

A Wednesday Walk in the Garden

Landscapes of any type offer an opportunity to get outside and commune with nature. Landscapes that mirror natural settings can be especially soothing, especially with the addition of moving water. Not only is the sound of trickling water soothing, but a water feature also adds an important habitat component to attract wildlife such as songbirds, hummingbirds, and butterflies. The trickle, bubble, and splash of water bring an additional layer of music to the landscape, offering relaxation and a sense of well being.

In this presentation, Randy Tumber, award-winning Canadian landscape designer, will share some of the tips, experiences, and philosophies that he has learned throughout his design career. With an emphasis on subtle, yet stunning, natural beauty, Randy’s expertise is in cultivating immersive environments that are emotionally engaging, visually attractive, and often include a water element. He specializes in the design and installation of mature, native landscapes that produce natural-looking water features using natural stone coupled with native habitat restoration.

Randy Tumber, APLD, CLD, CHT, has been in the landscape design and build industry in the Toronto, Canada area for over 40 years. As the founder of Tumber & Associates, he established an award winning reputation for a natural approach to landscape design and a keen eye for detail in his implementation of these concepts.

Randy’s work is accredited with over 100 national and international awards and countless feature magazine articles. These prestigious honors include two international Masters of Design awards, two Dunnington Grubb awards as the highest overall recognition for Ontario, and the Canadian National Landscape of the Year.

In 2016 Randy sold this business to focus on another passion – training the next generation of artists in the global landscape industry.
