Looking at Your Landscaping with a Designer’s Eye Tuesday, June 08 at 7pm
Landscape designer from Fullerton Grounds Maintenance Elizabeth Johnston will talk about how she views the planting / hardscapes / architecture of a house as a landscape designer and how she can help you see yours with new eyes. She will discuss how to add personality to your landscaping and add to your home and lifestyle.
Good landscaping doesn’t necessarily mean a lot of upkeep or that you have to be a master gardener. Planning and thoughtful decisions can easily create a comfortable look without a lot of work. It shows you examples of plantings, hardscapes and outdoor decorations.
Pruning can often change or destroy the look of plantings – Elizabeth will give you some great tips. She’ll also learn a little more about the best way to assess your outdoor spaces to spice them up for summer enjoyment.
