Garden Design: Structure and Movement

April 6, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Once we have the conceptual ideas narrowed down to one or two general schematics of our garden spaces, we can start shaping them with program and structure. Structure and movement consist of more than a row of shrubs, a fence, a path or a wall at your property line – this is how you shape a space, create a sense of enclosure, and lead the eye to landscape destinations. This online lecture and demonstration will identify features and design principles captured initially on trace layers, which will ensure both pragmatic and inspirational function in our gardens. After this class, students will feel empowered to practice on the personal project that will help them prepare for the next class, Garden Design: Details in the Layers. Upon registration, students will receive a list of supplies recommended to pursue their own design project.

Cheryl Salatino has been the principal designer and owner of Dancing Shadows Garden Design since 2002, a residential garden design and services firm recently transplanted from Massachusetts to Maine. Cheryl received her certificate in landscape design from the Radcliffe Seminars Landscape Design Program at Harvard University and an Advanced Certificate in Horticulture and Design from Native Plant Trust. Serving for several years as Chair of the Master Certificate in Horticulture (MCH) Board for Massachusetts Nursery and Landscape Association, Cheryl was honored with the President’s Award for her contribution in furthering education within the green industry. Cheryl teaches landscape design for students at the Native Plant Trust and presents a plethora of lectures to garden clubs throughout New England.
