FREE Garden Class

July 19, 2014



I received an email from Fine Gardening magazine offering a FREE online mini-garden class, so I thought I would share this opportunity with you. Here’s what the email said:


Have the Garden of the Month, Every Month Make your garden the envy of all your neighbors–without an expensive overhaul! Join me, landscape designer and author Rebecca Sweet, for my FREE, online Craftsy mini-class, Transform Your Garden Design, and elevate your uninspired or chaotic garden to one that’s filled with harmonious color, texture and form.

During class, you will learn all the essential techniques you need to revive your garden design. First, I will teach you how to begin your garden transformation by editing your garden and breaking down key elements using photos. Then, find out how to create echoes in your space, to add a sense of continuity using color, texture and form.

Begin with the simplest element–color! Then explore the unexpected and touchable textures that the plant world has to offer. Finally, learn about shape and form, and how to incorporate this subtle element into your garden design. By the end of this class, you’ll have identified garden wrongs and have learned how to make them right with easy-to-understand and easy–to–implement solutions.

When I’m not teaching or designing with my firm Harmony in the Garden, you can find my work in magazines like Sunset, Fine Gardening and Country Living. I also make guest appearances on television and radio series like Growing a Greener World and Martha Stewart Living, and authored the book Refresh Your Garden Design with Color, Texture and Form. Sign up for Transform Your Garden Design for FREE now, and learn how to wake your weary space to transform it into the garden of your dreams.
