  • This event has passed.

Good garden design isn’t easy; but success awaits for 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 here.

Please note this class has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 5 & 12 due to the snow forecasted on Saturday, January 29.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Two Saturdays: January 22 & 29 (Snow Date: Saturday, February 5)
