Date: March 20, 2019
Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Location: 3535 Jarrettsville Pike, Monkton, MD, USA
The Chanticleer Gravel Garden is a stunning and unique landscape planted with a mix of fine-textured grasses, gray-leafed Mediterranean plants, drought tolerant perennials, annuals grown from seed, and hardy succulents. Form, texture, color, and rhythm are carefully considered in the design choices on this gently sloping site. Lisa Roper, horticulturist at Chanticleer, will introduce some of her favorite plants, cover planting techniques, the importance of “editing,” and the technique of using photography to inform design decisions.
