When it comes to pop culture in Atlanta, no one can forget that gardens are a popular topic and gardening is a popular activity. And that's why a large crowd of people enrolled in a landscape and garden design workshop this week from Sept. 19-21, to be held at the Atlanta History Center.
Garden workshop participants hoped to learn all they need to know to transform their home gardens and landscapes into designs that rival those of people who hire professional landscape designers to do the job, like Dargan Landscape Architects in Buckhead.
And these participants were not displeased, returning on day two of the event back to the history center for more lectures and talks on how to create those beautiful oasis havens. They were also scheduled to go back out into the field with the Dargans, to tour more luxury home gardens in the area on Friday.
Sometimes just seeing other people's gardens, or the endless types of garden gates and garden planters being used can help spark another person's creativity, giving them the ideas to implement in their own garden. And then there are those times when one really must know--from an expert--just how to go about achieving a certain landscape design look in the home garden.
Participants of the Dargan Landscape workshop in Atlanta Thursday through Saturday are getting the best of both worlds, learning the basic design principles to create their own garden blueprint, as well as seeing for themselves how the experts redid eight gardens in the community of Buckhead.
Take a visual garden tour with them through this list of must-see gardens, different garden gates, various types of garden planters and more. And then consider signing up for the next Mary Palmer Dargan garden and landscape design workshop by following the Atlanta Landscape Design Examiner, who will let you know when that event will take place--and where.
