Garden Design 101

Ms. Maffei’s Garden Design 101 presentation takes concepts from architecture, interior design, and garden design, showing you how to incorporate these principles into your greenspace. Topics include assessment and function, enclosure and third dimension, texture and shape, rhythm and repeat planting, timing, massing, color, and maintenance. This presentation shows you how adding an element to your garden, such as a fence, can vastly enhance the garden’s beauty and focuses on gardening as a process rather than as a product. By simplifying the elements of garden design, Mary Jo helps gardeners understand how to view and adapt their greenspace to their needs.

Mary Jo Maffei has been gardening since she was a teenager but started gardening seriously and studying garden design 30 years ago. She is passionate about beautiful and functional garden design and loves helping others create their own beautiful outdoor space.
