A Landscape Transformation: One designer’s trials, tribulations & triumphs

HAS was happy to present an exciting, new event format: a lecture and garden tour/potluck.  It was our pleasure to introduce HAS member and friend, Liz Burnett. Liz presented a lecture about her personal garden’s transformation that took several years of planning and implementation.

In 2011, Liz and her family settled in Colorado and bought a home in Colorado Springs. The property was well situated but the landscaping was minimal and mostly overgrown. Relying on her background in architecture coupled with her passion for design and love of gardens, she undertook a major upgrade and re-designed her landscaping.

After Liz’ illustrated lecture and hearing all about her trials, tribulations and triumphs, participants toured her gardens on a beautiful and warm summer evening, and enjoyed a delicious potluck supper with al fresco dining.

Do you have a dog who is an escape artist?  A digger?  Is he lounging in the water feature or chewing up the deck?  Barking too aggressively at the fence and annoying the neighbors?  Ever wonder why the pooch is doing these things and what you can do about it?  Come to this class and learn things you might never have realized about your beloved pup, and get ideas on how to reduce these behaviors through a few garden adjustments or additions.  Lawn spots?  We will cover that too, as well as toxic plants and dangerous items your pet may get into.  Linda Brennen, of Canine Coach, will be co-teaching this class with Pat Sullivan of Smart Garden Design.  Linda is a certified professional dog trainer who really understands dog behavior and can clue you in on why your dog does those crazy things that drive you mad.  This is a great chance to talk with a dog trainer or a garden designer with your questions.  Come on out–you can’t ask questions on YouTube!
