Home is where the heart is. It is also where you and your loved ones can relax, dine, and play. Whether you want a more welcoming front entranceway for graduation photos and family portraits, a peaceful porch to read a book or discuss philosophy, a space to grill and sing happy birthday over cake, or an area for frisbee and cornhole, landscaping can help make your own property feel like a staycation.

In this Rutgers Home Gardeners School @Home one-hour Home Sweet Home Landscaping online course, learn about the many factors that go into creating a successful landscape.

Residential landscape designer Kirsten Soriano will discuss choosing the right plant material, plant combinations, maintenance, and seasonal flowers. She will cover ideas for front entranceways, seasonal beautification, hardscaping (such as driveways, decorative borders, paved paths), privacy hedges, arbors, lampposts, fencing, and much more.

In just one short hour, Kirsten offers tons of tips to make your home look its best in the winter, spring, summer, and fall. Register today!
