Saratoga Library's Community Room

Drawing from her new garden memoir Cutting Back, Leslie Buck will discuss
the natural garden pruning traditions of Japan. She will illustrate how the Japanese use a native plant palate, how the gardens of Japan evoke the wild landscape, and the tricks Japanese garden craftsmen use to design with native plants over time. She will also present photos from her book.


Leslie is a garden designer and aesthetic pruner, who specializes in natural design in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has over two decades of gardening experience, and a fine art degree from U.C. Berkeley and the Bordeaux School of Fine Arts in France. In 2000, Leslie studied with Uetoh Zoen, one of the oldest and most highly acclaimed landscape companies in Japan.


Leslie’s book will be available for sale and signing after the program.
