During this 2 hour, hands on design workshop, participants will learn how to create a garden that comes alive every season of the year. Instructor Kathy Noble, L.A., will delve into the mysteries of design, plant selection, hardscapes, microclimates and soils.  Then starting with a base map of existing plants and physical structures, Noble will guide participants as they use tracing paper to visualize bloom sequences from spring through summer and structural interest during the winter. Everyone will leave with a personalized garden design and plant selection ideas that can be implemented as soon as spring arrives.
