Landscape Design Basics

Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 10 a.m. - FREE

Vince Molnar, Riverland Nursery Owner, will discuss basic landscape design concepts as well as unique plants that look their best in our cooler months. Vince will recommend plants that are ideal to install during the winter months, and discuss care and maintenance.  This class is intended to provide a useful starting point for those wishing to improve their landscapes and to solve challenges such as improving curb appeal, creating privacy, trees to establish shade and beauty, attracting butterflies and birds, and reducing physical plant maintenance. 

His discussion will include assessing drainage, soil, shade versus sun, irrigation, measuring areas, landscape bed layout, and much more.  He will also explain how to evaluate plants to ensure that you select 'the right plant for the right place.'
