Museum’s Exhibit Caters to Landscapers

Updated Jul 14, 2013

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts, is opening a new type of exhibit that might spark the interest of some landscapers.

The museum will be introducing “Composite Landscapes: Photomontage and Landscape Architecture.”

Instead of featuring the history of mowers, the exhibit will feature landscape architecture and define the distinction between landscaping and gardening, according to an article by Metro.

“Landscaping is specifically human; it’s hard to imagine us without it,” Charles Waldheim, the exhibit’s curator and Chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, told the Metro. “But though all cultures are involved with gardening, which involves the use of plant materials, not all cultures are involved in landscaping, which is spacial.”

The exhibit is open today through Sept. 2 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Tickets are $15 per person. 

The Attachments Idea Book
Landscapers use a variety of attachments for doing everything from snow removal to jobsite cleanup, and regardless of how often they are used, every landscaper has a favorite attachment.
