Garden Design Clinic

  • This event has passed.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to work with Annie Guilfoyle, an award-winning garden designer from London, England. In this information-filled, two-day workshop, Annie introduces students to the design process and problem-solving techniques, leading to a basic conceptual layout for your garden. Through discussion, hands-on designing, and individual direction, learn how to assess your site, where to find inspiration, and how to turn your dreams into a workable garden plan. The program also includes an introduction to making wise plant selections, using the gardens at Mt. Cuba for inspiration. Leave with a plan in progress from which to continue your design concepts. This clinic is suited to homeowners who want to redesign their garden, people working in the garden industry, and landscape designers. This is a two session class: Tuesday’s hours are 1-4pm, Wednesday’s hours are 10a-4pm.

Lunch is included in the registration fee.
