H.A.S. invites you to a 3-part Garden Design Workshop
with Priscilla Marbaker
Whether your garden is new or old, still in the planning stage or in need of renovation, this Garden Design Workshop can be just what you need. This is a great opportunity to design a new garden or reinvigorate your existing garden. Noted landscape architect Priscilla Marbaker will provide you the tools and knowledge to consider your garden’s structure and materials to best fit your lifestyle. While the role of plants will be discussed, this is not a planting design series.
Some of the questions addressed in Session 1: What makes a garden unique to the individual or family? What makes a garden enjoyable? What do I want? What do I have? Where do I start?
In Session 2 we will ask: What makes a garden interesting? What makes a garden have presence? What makes the garden a living part of our home?
And in Session 3: What hardscape materials should I consider? What plants should I consider? How will I water this new garden? What resources are available to me?
Each lecture/class will build upon the previous. To get the most out of it plan to attend all three! There will be homework on your own garden so plan to spend a bit of time outside of class and really dig into it!
