The Gardners Connect annual Kansas City Garden Symposium will feature a six-hour garden design class entitled, The Garden Room Method, to help you unravel the design process and delineate living and planting spaces.
This workshop will challenge you to look at landscape design as a series of purposeful outdoor spaces. Our day will be filled with a series of short exercises to show how you can create one lovely outdoor room. Exercises include finding focus for your garden, arranging the space, giving it form, then finally enclosing it with walls and a ceiling.
