  • Landscape Renovation 101
    Wednesday, May 03, 2017 06:30pm - 07:45pm

    Overgrown landscape? Too much bluegrass? It might be time to re-evaluate your yard.  Just as interiors need freshening up from time to time, so do our outdoor spaces.  Does your current landscape meet your needs and wants? If not, consider attending this class.  We will discuss such "re-do" considerations as:
    *Site analysis
    *Water direction and conservation
    *Minimizing maintenance
    *Adding year-round color
    *Design
    *Demolition
    *Hardscape additions (such as decorative rock and pathways)

    We would like to apply a portion of this class to real-world landscapes in our area.  If you would like your landscape to be considered as an example that helps guide discussion, please email photos to markphelan@phelangardens.com.  We would appreciate all photos to be emailed by April 15 to give us time to evaluate.  Please add "May 3 Class" to the subject line when you email your photos. (Due to time constraints, we may not be able to discuss all submitted photos, but will follow up for those not spotlighted in discussion.)

      

    Cost: Free. Please fill in the on-line class sign up form to reserve your spot. Enter each attendee individually.
