Raymond Jungles had the good fortune to be mentored by Roberto Burle Marx, the Brazilian Master. For more than 12 years, Raymond would shadow Roberto and hear about how Roberto would create his beautiful gardens based on principles not formulas.
Burle’s number one recommendation was to… “Do what you like.” Another piece of wisdom was his advice to “stay curious”. Raymond will present case studies on the process for designing his gardens, as well as how Roberto’s gardens unfold.
