W. Gary Smith, FASLA - Biography - Gary is a landscape architect who designs gardens that celebrate plants and the connections they offer between people and nature. Current projects include “Ojos y Manos”, the ethnobotanical garden at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden, the Children’s Garden at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and “Lost Hollow,” the Children’s Garden at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. His design for Peirce’s Woods at Longwood Gardens was acknowledged with a Design Merit Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects. In 2011 he received the Landscape Design Award from the American Horticultural Society, and his book From Art to Landscape: Unleashing Creativity in Garden Design was given an AHS Garden Book Award. In 2013 he received an Honor Award from the American Society of Landscape Architects for his design for the Southern Highlands Reserve, a new botanical garden of native plants in Lake Toxaway, North Carolina. Gary lectures frequently at public gardens and professional conferences. Advocating greater interest among landscape architects for public spaces that focus on plants and horticulture, he serves on the ASLA Education Advisory Committee, and created the Planting Design Professional Practice Network for the ASLA. Formerly Associate Professor of Landscape Design at the University of Delaware, he has served as adjunct faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Texas, and Louisiana State University.
