Residential Landscape Design Workshop

Garden Design Clinic
  • This event has passed.

Good garden design isn’t easy; but success awaits anyone with a passion for plants, a little imagination, and proper guidance. Lee Armillei, a professional landscape designer, shows how to analyze a site, draw a basic plan, and use design principles for laying out paths, planting beds, and other garden features. Through lectures and drawing exercises, students explore design options, assess landscape materials, and employ a process that results in a practical planning document for their individual landscape project. Please bring your lunch. (Class size is limited.)
A detailed list of required materials is available online with the class description.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Two Fridays: February 17 & 24, 2023 (Snow Date: Friday, March 3)

About the Instructor:
Lee Armillei, APLD, is the principal landscape designer with Athyrium Design and has 10+ years of design-build-maintenance experience. She holds a BS in Ornamental Horticulture and Environmental Design from Delaware Valley University and designs carefully curated residential landscapes steeped in environmentally friendly practices.
