This workshop will begin with an outline of English gardening strategies and design elements that can be successfully adapted to North Carolina gardens. Then you will have the opportunity to sketch out the basics of a plan for your landscape.

Participants should bring a drawing of the site they want to develop. No site should be larger than 75 x 75 feet. Past participants have implemented the designs they created in this class and are enjoying the colorful results.
