June 18, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm


If you want to better understand how to apply tried-and-true design principles to a new garden project you have in mind, this workshop is just the ticket to get you on your way. Terri will cover:

  • Principles and elements of design.
  • How to apply them to a landscape project.
  • Evaluating a site and creating a design before jumping into buying plants.
  • Assessing environmental factors that affect your site.
  • Identifying needs and intended use up front.
  • Designing for sustainability.

You’ll have fun taking what you’ve learned and applying it to a real project during the workshop.
