Top 10 landscaping mistakes to avoid, March 11

FENCE gardening seminars will start on Monday, March 11 at 10 a.m.

The program topic this month will be “Top 10 Mistakes to Avoid in the Landscape” and will be presented by landscape consultant and certified landscape manager, Rhonda Anderson.

The discussion will begin with an explanation of accepted landscape design “rules,” and progress to a complete and proper timeline for planting carefree plants during the average spring, and the spring of 2013 in particular. Attendees are welcome to bring photos of problem areas in their landscapes and Rhonda will gladly address the area and offer creative solutions.

Anderson will share her years of “practical hands on” experience for improving and correcting landscape designs. There will be a question and answer session and refreshments will be served. This program will be held rain or shine and is offered with the support of the Kirby Endowment Fund administered through the Polk County Community Foundation.
