We all say we want one, but what is a low-maintenance garden anyway? In this one hour class on Zoom, Colleen will share 5 key concepts for designing a landscape that won’t run your life.
Looking to make your existing garden easier to care for? Colleen is doing the same with her own landscape and has real-life examples of how to accomplish just that. See stunning photos of low maintenance gardens done right, AND real situations that could use some improvement–including from her own, current garden to-do list.
Whatever your motivation: lack of time, physical limitations, changing interests… this class will help you examine your own gardening practices and spaces for updates that will free up your time. You’ll get ideas for changes (small and large) to consider for a satisfying, personalized and easier garden. A helpful handout to use in evaluating your own landscape will be provided.
Colleen Miko has enjoyed a varied career in horticulture, including being the former Horticulture Educator for WSU Kitsap Extension, where she taught nearly 300 Master Gardener and Rain Garden Mentor volunteers. In her work as landscape designer, she created winning gardens for the NW Flower & Garden Show and HGTV show “Landscaper’s Challenge”. She is a Certified Professional Horticulturist (CPH) and freelance garden writer who journals to document and enjoy her garden and life experiences.
