Bones of the Garden: Strengthening the Design
All memorable landscapes have one thing in common – strong “bones.” The placement of trees and shrubs creates form, directs movement, and organizes the garden. Learn to situate and integrate these stately elements into the cultivated landscape. Explore the concepts of scale, the creation of space, and the impact of change over time. You will experience first-hand how these concepts can change your approach. Using these concepts, develop your own site-specific design and receive feedback on designs and plant combinations. During the final session, inspect the “bones” of Garden in the Woods with a late winter walk.
