Date & Time

Last Held: March 1-2, 2021

Description

This is one online class that takes places over two consecutive days. The class runs from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm EST each day.

How do you improve a landscape for a client who can't or won't spend the money? One way is to improve the "beds and borders," described by instructor Bruce Neary as "everything on a property that is not turf." Using his energetic style, Bruce will take you through the design, installation, and maintenance process. He'll teach participants to expertly orchestrate and combine herbaceous perennials, bulbs, flowering shrubs, annuals, and small trees to give the residence year-round beauty – and he'll demonstrate the effect of artistic plant placement and how to maximize the visual elements of garden bed architecture. You'll get the feel and impact of a mini design seminar!

Topics Include:

  • Conceiving the design
  • Laying out the plans
  • Preparing the site
  • Choosing the best plants
  • Renovating established beds
  • Composting and mulching
  • Maintenance considerations
  • Staying flexible
