Garden design lessons offered

Landscape designer Ed Lindemann will conduct a three-part workshop at Blithewold Manor to develop or improve the basic design of homeowners' gardens.

Session one is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will include an illustrated lecture about garden structure and space, as well as a demonstration of how to sketch a project, evaluate garden needs, and achieve the desired result. Session two will be on Tuesday, Sept. 11, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., and will offer studio time to develop the project on paper and receive valuable hands-on help from Lindmann. Session three meets offsite on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., at a private Little Compton garden that incorporates Lindemann's designs, encouraging lively discussion of design, plants, hardscaping, and garden ornaments.

Pre-registration is required, and the fee is $100 for Blithewold members and $125 for non-members. Call 253-2707.
