Basic Landscape Design

Event Dates and Times

9/18/2017
Blount County Public Library, 508 N. Cusick St., Maryville, TN 37804
 Monday, September 18, 7 p.m., “Basic Landscape Design” by Dr. Tom Knight, retired professor of horticulture and landscape design at Eastern Kentucky University. At this session, Dr. Knight will introduce basic home landscape design principles. The use of color, shape, form and function of landscape features will be addressed as well as plant selection and proper placement within the landscape to maximize aesthetic appeal and functionality. Proper use of hardscape features, along with green materials, will be visited to complement understanding of landscape access features and service areas. A properly planned, installed and maintained landscape can certainly add curb appeal and may add to property value as well. This program will be in the Sharon Lawson Room.
