Gardens Unlimited: Using Design Challenges to Create Great Gardens

Every landscaping project has its challenges. From hilly terrain to unsightly neighbors, sometimes the apparent difficulties of a situation can seem to outweigh the possibilities. Through years of creating gardens, we have learned how to overcome and even use design challenges to create beautiful outdoor spaces.

Some highlights of our presentation:

  • Key strategies to approaching any landscape challenge
  • How to distinguish between a long term limitation and a fixable situation
  • Design approaches that turn tiny, large or awkward spaces into great gardens
  • Using hills and slopes to the garden's advantage
  • Non-traditional screening ideas
  • Planting ideas for a palette limited by shade, deer or other factors
  • Tips for balancing beauty with budget

We look forward to sharing experience, ideas and inspiration next Tuesday.  Hope to see you there!  Rebecca & Buell
