Gardening 101: Basic Landscape Planning & Problem Solving 124b
Have a spot you don’t know what to do with? A patch of lawn where nothing grows? In this companion class to Gardening 101: The Basics, you’ll learn how to plant the right plant in the right spot and to artfully combine evergreen trees and shrubs, deciduous trees and shrubs, bulbs, perennials, and annuals for year-round interest. We’ll discuss the roles of each type of plant group in creating a structurally sound and diverse garden, with interesting features and color for four season enjoyment. Principles can be applied to foundation plantings, stand-alone gardens, and full landscapes. Bring a photograph and rough dimensions of an area you hope to plant or rejuvenate, and we’ll brainstorm possible design options to get you started. This class may be taken alone or in conjunction with Gardening 101: The Basics.
