Learn how to create a beautiful garden oasis that lasts well beyond the summer months, with expert guidance from author and garden designer David Culp. See stunning examples of layered gardens in David's own space, before diving into techniques for making your garden a reflection of the landscape around it. Work with native plants, add personalized decorative touches and more for a garden that's uniquely you. Then, bring texture, color and repetition into your garden for a cohesive space, and design an entry garden that dazzles guests. Up next, David shows you how to plant striking arrangements on steep slopes and shares a primer on borders for a polished finish. Think rock and trough gardening is tough? Think again as David shows you how to create a gorgeous trough and shares his personal recipe for rich soil.
Meet garden designer David Culp and preview the techniques you'll learn to create a gorgeous garden year-round. Your first lesson opens on two acres in the rolling hills of eastern Pennsylvania, as David uses his own property to offer examples of layered gardens and how to achieve the most out of one spot.
Discover David's method of making a garden look like a reflection of the surrounding landscape, rather than one that's artificially superimposed. In this lesson, he'll show you how to accomplish that natural look by taking cues from your own home, using native plants and appropriate ornamentals.
Now that you have a good idea of what a layered garden is, it's time to talk about design. Once again, using examples from his own home, David will show you how he deals with texture and color, and why he's a big fan of repetition in both. Plus, learn some maintenance tips and tricks from an expert!
