Two Mondays, May 12 & 19
10:00 A.M. - 1:00 P.M.

Contemporary garden design combines plants in naturalistic patterns to create a garden with season-long interest. Consider how color, form, texture, and bloom time affect your choice of plants, and learn how to select plants for special situations. Share pictures of your garden areas in need of renewal, gain inspiration from some of today’s most appealing designers, then we’ll revisit ideas for your own site, incorporating what we’ve learned.
