Webinar: GARDEN WAYS: Professional Tips on Design and Plant Selection

Wed, June 24, 2020 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 1:00 pm EDT

Methods of design and ways of selecting appropriate plant material for a landscape vary.  Karen Howard will share some techniques she uses to create a garden space, and structure a landscape design.

Enclosing space, using specimen plants, and plants in drifts, will be explored.   Karen will also discuss the sequence she uses to choose plants, and how she locates them.

Examples of many plants that she uses in designs will be shown, and she will discuss how and when she uses specific types of plants.

Karen Howard comes from a long line of artists including painters, a ceiling muralist, a furniture maker and a garden designer. Karen followed in their footsteps.  Her company, Howard Designs, is a full service residential architectural and landscape design firm that combines Karen’s interest in houses and gardens.  She has lectured for the Ecological Landscape Alliance, the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, the Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association, the New England Spring Flower Show and many local garden clubs.

Karen is a registered architect in New York and Massachusetts, a landscape designer, and a Massachusetts Certified Horticulturist.
