Course description

Does your garden need a reboot? Fall is the best time to evaluate your garden and plan for next year! With your 2020 successes and challenges still fresh in your mind, get one-on-one coaching from a landscape designer, who will help you determine what to keep, move, remove, or add to make your garden cohesive, balanced, and beautiful in 2021 and beyond. Gather photos and a plat of survey so you can develop a conceptual plan for your space and learn to communicate your ideas on paper.
