GARDEN DESIGN SEMINAR

Learn Gardening with Maintenance in Mind

November 26, 2012

[FERNDALE] – Learn how to spend more time enjoying your garden than maintaining it at Sullivan Renaissance’s seminar entitled “Garden Design with Maintenance in Mind” on Wednesday, December 5 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Ferndale. 

Presented by gardening expert Mary Lewis, the seminar will focus on proactive ways that smart design can significantly decrease maintenance efforts.  The key elements to managing garden maintenance include site analysis, plant selection and sound garden design techniques.

“Smart design addresses so many maintenance issues.  If you are planning a new garden or making changes to an existing one, the time to address maintenance concerns is now,” Lewis said.  “Experienced gardeners know that the person who maintains the garden is the ultimate designer.  It's all about simplifying and taking control of maintenance tasks while still in the design stage.” 

Mary Lewis is a consultant for Sullivan Renaissance and had been a Renaissance judge for nine years.  She is founder and principal of Barncroft, a garden design firm; chair of Zone III 2008 Annual Meeting of the Garden Clubs of America; and past president of Orange and Dutchess Garden Club.  A Cornell University graduate, she studies botanical art at New York Botanical Garden.

Everyone is welcome to attend.  Refreshments will be served.  Please RSVP by December 3.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  For more information or to register, call 845-295-2445 or visit www.sullivanrenaissance.org.
