The beauty of a heritage home is enhanced by well-planned gardens. Christine Allen, Author of ‘Gardens of Vancouver’, will show you how to design a heritage garden including an overview of traditional garden styles and how they were interpreted in early Vancouver. Christine will share recent examples of heritage houses complemented by their gardens, and discuss the plants used to create various effects. There will be time to work on ideas for your own project using a provided plant list. You are encouraged to bring photographs or sketches of problem areas for general discussion. This course will be relevant for anyone planning or developing a garden for a heritage or character home.
