Description
For the past five years, Lisa has been developing the Chanticleer Gravel Garden, a gently sloping, well-drained, south-facing site. She will discuss how form, texture, color and rhythm are carefully considered in the garden, which is planted with a mix of fine-textured grasses, gray-leafed Mediterranean plants, hardy succulents, annuals grown from seed and perennials. Lisa will also cover the importance of editing constantly to tame plants that seed in enthusiastically, and techniques of using photography to inform her design decisions.
