Your Garden by Design

Garden design questions are as individual as the gardeners and their properties. For instance:

Do you have lots of ideas for a new garden but don’t know how to put it all together?

Has your garden has been in place for years and now seems lackluster and tired?

Do you have difficulty visualizing an overall plan?

Do you need to rethink an out-of-control section?

In a ‘Design you own garden‘ workshop you get to pursue a personal design project for your own garden. Your project can be anything you want—from developing a brand new spatial layout that complements your land, to creating a planting plan for an existing bed that sorely needs a ‘make-over’.

In the workshop I will help you create a new design for your garden so that, by the end, you will have a ‘ready to implement‘ scale drawing that answers your specific problem.

During the workshop I will also provide instruction in both design and drawing techniques, as well as short videos on specific topics that can be watched individually as needed.

Workshop logistics

If you have a group of friends who would like to take a workshop together, either you can come to my Goshen home or I can come to your location.

The workshop lasts ten hours, spread over two days. To allow ample time for individualized feedback each workshop is limited to just six participants (four when it is conducted at my home).

Before the start of the workshop we can discuss the scope of your personal project together. I will also provide instructions for you to collect measurements and photographs of your land as it is now.

During the workshop I will provide drawing paper and instruments for making a scale plan of your garden as you would like it to be.
