Do you want to have a beautiful garden, but don’t know where to start? Garden, or landscape, design principles can teach you where and what to plant. Planting should be based on the mature size of the plant, so you don’t have jam packed flower beds in a few years.
Here are some resources to help:
- Recording of Landscape Design presentation by Jack Landgrebe, Douglas County Master Gardener
- K-State Landscape Design publication
- K-State Garden Hour presentation named Landscape Design 101. The recorded video will be posted after March 2, 2022.
- Designing a new flower bed or revamping a current one can intimidate any gardener. With just a few simple design principles, become more confident in choosing plants for these areas. Join Travis Carmichael, Lyon County Horticulture Extension Agent, as he discusses design principles, including the importance of planting in groups, planning for mature size, and bringing year-round color to the landscape.
