NC Botanical Garden hosts workshop for Designing and Building a Residential Garden

Saturdays, February 9 and 16; 9:00 am–12:30 pm
Presented by:  Katherine Gill, Landscape Architect and co-owner of Tributary Land Design + Build
This two-session workshop teaches basic principles of sustainable residential landscape design, from site analysis through construction, and provides hands-on experience for designing and building one’s own garden. Using each participant’s home as the project, Class 1 teaches the design basics—scale, site analysis, principles of plant design using natives and edibles, site design of pathways and outdoor rooms, and discuss types and uses of landscape materials. Class 2 will apply learned principles and participants will create a scaled schematic site plan for a home landscape. Participants will take home the beginnings of a design for their own yard. Bring a plot of your property to first class.
Fee: $70 ($60 NCBG members). Register online at
