  • Learning from Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden
    • This walkabout builds on the Smart Garden Design for Dry Times class and includes an initial 'refresher' of sustainable garden design principles. Alice Keck Memorial Garden is a living, 3-dimensional gallery demonstrating the application of basic design principles. Learn to see garden design as more than a collection of colorful flowers and gain a better understanding of the multiple roles plants can play in the landscape. Gain an appreciation for how form, foliage, density, and visual texture are the building blocks of year-round beauty and interest. Discover how proper plant selections and spacing result in a low-maintenance, environmentally superior landscape
