Does your front or back garden need updating? Or are you looking to create a new garden? This series of design workshops will guide you through the process of designing your own garden. Each session will begin with a short discussion, then you’ll will have the opportunity to work in a classroom setting on developing a design and implementation plan for the garden project of your choice. Topics to be covered include designing for ongoing seasonal interest, plant material options, and how to prepare for implementation. At the end of the five sessions, you will have completed a planting design with a comprehensive plant list, cost estimate, and implementation schedule.
