Design Basics for Creating Beautiful Outdoor Space
Garden lovers revel in being in an outdoor space where the feeling of wellbeing descends upon them. So, how can you transform your backyard into a place where this happens?

Each suggestion offered is lushly illustrated - learn ‘the Principle of Three Depths,’ ‘the Power of the Portal’ and ‘Hide and Reveal’ among many others. The audience members will leave with a collection of distinct design techniques that can be used in their own gardens.
