This master thesis is focused on how ecological planting design can be made by using native plants. Basic principles of vegetation ecology for a site-appropriate use of plants as well as conceptual details for development and maintenance of horticultural plant communities are the starting point of the work. Building on that, a wide range of possibilities is showed how design with native plants can be integrated and perform within an ecological garden design. Gardening literature authored by Alex Oberholzer, Lore Lässer, Reinhard Witt, Richard Hansen, Noël Kingsbury, Piet Oudolf, James Hitchmough and Nigel Dunnett are reviewed about planting design and the way of using native plants. Expert talks with executing persons of selected projects like the Botanical Garden of Vienna, the „Wildgarten Furth im Wald“ and one private garden in Vienna are leaded. By planning and building an own design for a natural garden in Lobau, practical experiences for using wild plants were collected and documented. In the discussion of the results the variety of approaches using native plants are compared with specific design concepts. In conclusion, all approaches which are mentioned in the thesis, could be read as results. These results stand by itselves and can be applied, depending on personal approach and a precisely worded objective.
