The New Naturalism Tour
Small garden design
The challenge of really effective garden design is in inverse proportion to its size. The smaller it is, the more exacting! In this workshop we’ll discuss the peculiar demands, along with the fabulous opportunities, of designing small - to very small - gardens, and workshop some solutions for tight spaces for a nearby project to reveal strong general principles.
By popular request, we’ve created a day-long workshop for beginner gardeners. We’ll take you (or someone you know who needs it more!) through all the things you need to know to get started. We’ll debunk lots of myths, and provide guiding principles and golden rules that will trump your need to remember a whole lot of specific gardening facts. You’ll be able to startle your green-thumbed friends with wisdom they didn’t know they didn’t know!
