Beyond Pinterest: Unlocking the Secrets behind the Pretty Picture

Clackamas County MG Monthly Lecture – Darcy Daniels, Landscape Designer

Monday, April 9, 2018 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Who doesn’t love flipping through gorgeous garden images? Whether on Pinterest or Instagram, they’re inspiring, fun and pretty to look at—but ultimately not very helpful. Darcy will help you break the code, giving you the tools to translate the pretty pictures into tangible garden plans using an innovative method that relies on asking the right questions in the right order as you define your site conditions, tease out your garden needs and desires, and evaluate possible plant partners through a descriptive design-oriented lens. The result: an artful, site-specific composition of plants that you’ll love growing. This easy-to-understand, fresh approach to breaking down the sometimes-mysterious act of combining plants will give you the tools to achieve magical, pin-worthy results in your own garden.
