This class will focus on the use of plants to create beautiful private outdoor living spaces. Kevin will discuss selecting species that will be successful in different kinds of growing conditions, training and pruning maintenance, and common problems to avoid. Imaginative trellising structures for vines will also be addressed. There will be an optional walking tour after the lecture of successful privacy plantings in the neighborhood around Gamble Garden.
