Crevice Gardens: A Useful New Tool For Dry Landscaping (Fruita Branch) In-Person

Join us as Kenton J. Seth presents on Crevice Gardens!

Crevice gardens have historically been an esoteric, European garden style with a strange name, but recent developments have catapulted them onto the international stage and into major public gardens and backyards, especially in the USA. By virtue of growing plants closely with rocks, the opportunity arises to grow certain exotic and native plants better than they can be in a traditional garden. Remarkably, a crevice garden works to shed water in a wet climate and store water in a dry climate, making it a universally useful system, also dealing with awkward garden spaces or making plantable alternatives to retaining walls. The new use of broken concrete as a stone alternative offers opportunity to include gardeners in places where rock is unavailable or too expensive.


Kenton J. Seth is a thirty-something Colorado-based garden designer and hopeless plant groupie. He has a small nursery to grow plants for his designs, which range from around Western Colorado to the US Coasts and even a few overseas. Crevice Gardens dominate his work, including a book called "The Crevice Garden" out in August 2022, but he also works with natives, dryland gardens, and recently meadows. He writes a blog at kentonjseth.blogspot.com and his work is at PaintbrushGardens.com.
