Upcoming Programs 

Green Screens, Fences, and Borders | May 11

The home landscape can be thought of as an extension of our living space and much like the rooms in our homes we can use plants as structural elements in the landscape. If you’ve visited an arboretum or botanical garden you’ve likely seen walls created with different plant species such as evergreens and perennial shrubs. Explore these design elements, some good species for creating screening, and design considerations for creating a green fence or screen successfully.

Presenter: Horticulture Educator Austin Little
