Landscape Design Simplified: Gardening Where You Live

Landscapes should ideally be created to function within the region they are located in. The design process is the same no matter where the landscape is located, but the materials and plants change based on location. Designer Cynthia Bee shares her simple 5-step process that you can implement which simplifies the design while still ensuring a beautiful and functional landscape. You can even sketch your own landscape design during the seminar!
