Facilitated by Cathy Bilow, owner of Accent Nature LLC, Green Gardening, Design and Lawn Care, this informative, hands on workshop will introduce you to the key principles of landscape design. Using these principles, learn how to successfully and beautifully integrate native plants into the home garden. Each participant should bring photos and measurements of the area they would like to design. There will be time for individual consultation and expect to go home with a good start on a plan for their space.
