UPCOMING EVENTS YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS!
March 2, 7:30 P.M. -- Bruce Crawford, Director of Rutgers University Gardens will present “Curb Appeal: Design Tips for the Front Yard” through properly enhancing the architecture of the house while also making your visitor feel welcome.
Bruce has wowed the garden club with numerous informative and entertaining presentations and we are delighted to have him back with this return engagement!
How often is the front yard of a home reduced to a jumble of plants along the foundation with an unwelcoming walkway to the front door, and garage doors that are architecturally more prominent than the front door? Crawford will focus on how to give a home that great sense of "curb appeal" through properly enhancing the architecture of the house with plants, trees and bushes, while also making your visitors feel welcome. Bruce is a graduate of Bucknell University and studied landscape architecture and horticulture at Cook College, Rutgers University. Bruce had his own design / build garden business for nearly 25 years, specializing in plantings for year-round interest. His gardens were featured in "Fine Gardening Magazine."
The program will be followed by a "Q & A" session and refreshments.
