Building Creative Plant Compositions

Start Date/Time:

End Date/Time:

Plant compositions are endless, ranging from small arrangements in containers to large expansive borders.  Strategic approaches in developing plant compositions integrate garden type, functional considerations, structural framework within the group, the overall dimension of the proposed landscape space, and proposed plant types. 

We will examine these factors and explore simple techniques used to build creative plant compositions.
