The “How Does a Landscape Designer Work?” Edition

Tom Noll trained as an artist, but he eventually translated his passion for plants and green living into a career as a landscape designer. Working mostly out of Washington, D.C.’s Bloomingdale neighborhood, he decorates the yards of the area’s many row homes, turning small plots into colorful expressions of their owners’ selves.

In a Slate Plus extra, Noll told us about his two children’s books—and discussed his passion for recycling.
