Achieve beauty in the shade! Bring life and interest to even the shadiest parts of your landscape with plant lists, design ideas, and maintenance tips from Sage Advice Landscape Design. We will begin by answering the question: Is it shade, or is it SHADE? Once we understand what type of shade you have in your garden, we will discuss design techniques for shade.
Following the informational session, the optional workshop sessions in Weeks 2 and 3 will provide professional guidance to participants who wish to design their own shade garden.
