Saturday, January 14, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm – Where’s The Front Door? Designing the Front Yard Garden

Join landscape architect David Dew Bruner at Berkshire Botanical Garden on Saturday, January 14, from 10 – 1, for a look at the front yard. Consider the history of the front yard and apply some basic principles to enhancing the use of this often ignored space. Learn how to reclaim the front yard as a viable/functional space to be used by the family. Issues covered will include front entrances, gardens, privacy, and what to do with that garage door!  Participants should bring a photograph of their front yards. Several will be selected to illustrate common design challenges and simple solutions.
