“Designing with Native Plants” with James Dillon

January 19, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

James Dillon, landscape designer and horticulturalist, views landscape design as the integration of science, nature and art. He will show us how to meld all of that together with native plants to create a beautiful garden.

James Dillon, PCH is a Certified Horticulturist with over 20 years of experience working in the green industry. With a B.Sc. in Biology from East Carolina University, he views landscape design as the integration of science, nature and art.
He practiced horticulture in the northern Delaware area, most notably at the Delaware Center for Horticulture, with continuing education at Longwood Gardens. Previously, as manager and buyer of woody plants for a diversified garden center in Chambersburg, PA, James became familiar with a large palette of native plants and plant cultivars.

Native plant selection, environmental benefits, and low maintenance gardens are emphasized in many designs. James has designed several rain gardens and continues taking coursework on ecological landscape design. James enjoys volunteering for The Monarch Alliance (a PVAS program), designing Monarch waystation gardens for them, in Maryland and West Virginia.

Mr. Dillon owns and operates Native Havens LLC, a small landscape/gardening company based out of his home, where he’s an avid gardener in Kearneysville, WV.
