Lambertville Goes Wild presents "Learn to Landscape" Series

Lambertville Goes Wild (LGW) will sponsor a three-part learning series "Learn to Landscape: Dream, Design, and Detail" at the Lambertville Public Library, 6 Lily Street, Lambertville, New Jersey. Lauren Kovacs, LLA, a landscape architect with over ten years of experience in sustainable landscape design, will guide participants through their design practice: from dreaming up a garden style, through designing useful spaces, to understanding installation details. Please register in advance at LambertvilleGoesWild@gmail.com to save your place; space is limited to 20 participants per session. Attendance at all 3 sessions is preferred but not required. Please indicate which sessions you will attend in your email.

 

Session 1 - DREAM - Saturday, February 24, from 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m.
Learn basic garden styles and how to build your design palette. Not "a creative type"? No problem! Participants will learn where to look for and how to catalog project styles and elements. This session will also provide detailed instructions on how to create a base map of your property for use in the following Design session.

 

Session 2 - DESIGN - Saturday, March 24, from 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m.
Learn how to create a functional home landscape. In this session, participants will learn how to prioritize and plan project spaces and elements. From hardscape and garden beds to arbors and umbrellas, learn to visualize your garden in three dimensions to create your own sense of place.

 

Session 3 - DETAIL - Saturday, April 28, from 10:30 a.m.–12 p.m.
In this hands-on workshop, get help combining your style(s), favorite elements, and desired spaces into a harmonious composition. Bring your images, sketches, and questions to Lauren and her team for personalized advice. From detailing and installing a patio to choosing the right plants for your garden, our team can get you on the path to a final garden design and realistic implementation plan.

 

Lambertville Goes Wild is a volunteer group working to promote wider use of native plants as a key part of its aim to certify Lambertville as a Community Wildlife Habitat recognized by the National Wildlife Federation. To reach our goal, several public spaces, such as parks and schools, and about 100 private properties need to support native species such as butterflies, birds, and bees by providing food, water, cover, and places to raise young.

 

Lambertville Goes Wild is reaching out to the residents of Lambertville to encourage and assist them in certifying their properties.
