Structure of the Garden: With photos, imagination, and creativity you can start/augment your garden using important framework criteria. We will discuss trees that tolerate drought and add 3-4 seasons of interest.
Shape and Form of the Garden: Filling the “middle” ground with shrubs and using form to make a year-round garden.
Using Colors and Textures: Developing a palette of colorful plants to provide year-round gardening delight. Perennials, grasses, and foliage all lend their parts to the whole.
