Presented by Pete Moscufo, Architectural Garden Designer
You know about scale, texture, color and form. You are familiar with sun vs. shade, and wet vs. dry. You have grown a number of cultivars, and are building up your knowledge of plant species. But your garden plans are not turning out quite the way you envision. In this design workshop we will take a step beyond the fundamentals and help you elevate your design ability. Through interactive discussion and critiques of real garden situations, you will learn to consider context, function, style, program, composition, seasonality, combinations, use of native plants, and other intermediate level principles. Bring a photo of your own garden project on a flash drive, and we may use it in the class discussion! This is an intermediate level class suitable for garden enthusiasts and professionals. Attendees should have some familiarity with basic garden design principles and common plants used in our region. 1½ hours with intermission. No materials required.
