Hands-On Landscape Design: Approaches for Desert Spaces


Posted on | January 4, 2011 | Comments Off

Tohono Chul Park has some of the best gardening/southwest culture classes in the Tucson area. In a couple of weeks, they will sponsor one called, “Hands-On Landscape Design: Approaches for Desert Spaces.” Author Scott Calhoun will be at Tohono Chul Park to talk about the joys and trials of a desert landscape. Best of all, he’ll give us a few desert landscape tips. I’m telling you about the class now so that you will pick up the phone and reserve your spot while there is time. To register call 742-6455 ext. 0.

From the blurb: “According to award-winning landscape designer and author Scott Calhoun, desert gardens have some pretty distinctive qualities that move beyond basic landscape design. Beginning with discussions of minimalism and sense of place, there will be exercises in “seeing” the desert, responding to architecture and shape, and even numerology and repetition. Finally, Calhoun offers tips on incorporating patios, rocks and plants into gardens as design elements. Participants are asked to bring a drawing of a house and lot with measurements for work on a conceptual plan during the class.”
