Creating an Ever-Blooming, Low Maintenance Garden

Garden Design 101, presented by Kerry Ann Mendez

In a joint meeting with Millis Garden Club, we learned steps for creating ever-blooming gardens that are also less maintenance. Topics included site assessment (i.e., light, soil, backdrop, water); plant selection for continuous blooms spring through fall; design principles and techniques for beautiful, harmonious beds; arranging plants based on mature heights; creating focal points; incorporating bulbs & annuals; plus drafting a design to scale and building a plant list.
