Scott Wentworth OALA, CSLA and Daria Nardone OALA will headline Landscape Ontario’s Landscape Contractors Sector Group lecture series on Feb. 27.

The annual event, featuring the landscape contractor and landscape architect, will focus on a variety of residential gardens, and the many ways in which outdoor living areas can blend beauty and function with a healthy outdoor lifestyle.

Nardone is a Toronto-based landscape architect with a broad range of experience from town planning to garden design, both locally and internationally. Born in Italy and raised in Scotland and Canada, her earliest travels sparked a lifelong interest in the perception and creation of landscapes.

Scott Wentworth is a landscape architect and president of the Wentworth Landscape Group, in Picton and Kingston, and has been building unique residential gardens for 23 years. In his 36 years of industry experience, he has created thousands of residential gardens, commercial landscapes and municipal parks.

The lecture will begin at 7 p.m. at the Latvian Cultural Centre, Riga Hall, 4 Credit Union Drive, Toronto, and  includes dinner at 6 p.m. Admission is $10 for the first person per company, and $5 for each person from the same company, following the first. Subsidized pricing is available due to the generosity of the event sponsors: Beaver Valley Stone, Dufferin Aggregates, Eloquip, Gro-Bark (Ontario), Sheridan Nurseries and Unilock.
