Bones of the Garden: Strengthening the Design
Every memorable landscape has one thing in common – strong “bones.” The placement of trees and shrubs creates form, directs movement, and organizes the garden. Learn to select, situate, and integrate these stately elements into the cultivated landscape. Explore the concepts of scale, creating space and the impact of plant growth over time in locating structural elements. Using your new knowledge, develop your own site-specific design. Receive feedback on designs and plant combinations. During the final session, inspect the “bones” of Garden in the Woods with a late winter walk.
