Master gardeners offer landscaping class

September 25, 2005

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.

Franklin County Master Gardeners will offer their "Principles of Landscape Design" series of classes from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays, beginning Oct. 6 and running for seven weeks. Classes will be held at the Cooperative Extension Office, 181 Franklin Farm Lane. The cost is $40 for individuals or $45 for couples. For information, call 1-717-263-9226.

"Landscape Design" participants will learn how to create their own personal landscape plan. The goal is for students to analyze their site and develop on paper a landscape design for the property, whether a new or existing home site. Classes will focus on subjects from drafting and site analysis, to trees, shrubs and ground covers. Special topics will include native plants, shade gardening and water features, and a visit on Saturday, Nov. 5, to a private garden with more than 600 kinds of woody and ornamental plants. The series will end with a private review of the participants' plans with experienced master gardeners on Thursday, Nov. 17.
