Using Plants with Colorful & Interesting Foliage: Living Large in a Small Garden


This workshop will be held at the site of our August, 2013 Featured Garden, which is the creation of the homeowners and landscape consultant Dave Ericson.
Homeowners Howard Appel and Loreen Collins, with Dave's help,  transformed the outdoor area of their home into an oasis filled with rare plants and exotic sculptures.

The workshop will be an open forum discussing the reasons why a small garden can seem so large.  Special attention will be paid to the many types and colors of plants that grow well together while creating a garden of beauty.

As an added bonus, the garden is fairly low-maintenance and sustainable, even through the winter (Dave will talk about the ingenuous rain retention system.). The garden showcases a vast array of colorful and exotic plants in a Hawaiian-style landscape including a koi pond and swimming pool. This is outdoor living at its finest.

In 2011, the garden was featured in San Diego Magazine. View online
