This presentation explores ways public gardens can enhance their features, functionality, and revenue-generating potential while offering more memorable, positive experiences for visitors. A landscape architect, a lighting designer, and a public garden director will share case studies of three major properties which underwent construction to accommodate program directives that included new considerations for facility night use through lighting.
