Painting with Plants

Just as an artist uses paint to create beautiful and inspiring works of art, Scott Hutcheon, of Seasons Landscaping does the same thing, but instead of paint he uses living plants as his medium. Come and see first hand the beauty of living walls at the 2010 Landscape Expo, Oct. 6 – 7, at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California.

Seasons Landscaping, the leader in living wall technology, will be designing and installing a living wall similar to the one shown here at the Landscape Expo. This display will incorporate more than 1200 plants donated by Armstrong Nurseries.

A licensed landscape architect and entrepreneur, Scott will also be sharing his expertise in living wall design, construction and installation in his seminar, “The Nature of Nature™”: Living Walls on Thursday, October 7th, from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. This course carries a .5 APLD CEU. Over the past 5 years having been on the forefront of this emerging technology, Scott will talk about the many sustainable benefits of living walls and how this growing market segment can benefit you.

Scott Hutcheon designs and installs living walls for a variety of clients ranging from large corporations to private residences. Learn what it takes to offer this unique product to your clients at the Landscape Expo.


After graduating from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1998 with a degree in Landscape Architecture and Environmental Design, Scott started up his landscape architecture and development business in Laguna Beach, Calif. His passion for landscaping and the environment evolved into an interest beginning in 2005 in vertical gardens and living roofs. He partnered with Bright Green to manufacture and distribute these unique eco-systems for use in our homes and buildings. Scott demonstrated this concept nationally on the Martha Stewart show.


In addition to just being beautiful to look at, living walls provide many other benefits such as improving air quality, acting as sound barriers from street noise and reducing heating and cooling bills by adding insulation to buildings, as in this example at a private residence.
