Wednesday, August 10, 7:00 pm – Designing the New Entrance Garden


That large pile of dirt outside Mass Hort’s main gate is about to be transformed into a stunning garden. The man who will wave a magic wand over that dirt is Paul Miskovsky, who has spent his career transforming ordinary properties into award-winning gardens (and the kind that grace magazine covers). He’ll talk about what his client (Mass Hort) wanted – “a welcoming place” – and how he translated those three words into stone, soil and plant material. He’ll show you how he designs a garden and solicit your thoughts on what ought to go into this one. This program is part of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s Wednesdays at Elm Bank series. All “Wednesday Evenings” talks begin at 7 p.m. and are held in the Education Building at Elm Bank. They end when the last question is answered. The cost to Mass Hort members is $10 per talk or $50 for the series of ten. The charge for non-Mass Hort members is $15 per talk. Refreshments and beverages are served at all talks. For directions and more information, visit www.masshort.org.  Pictured below is the entrance garden designed by Mr. Miskovsky outside Heritage Museums & Gardens’ administrative building.
