Fashioning Focal Points ~ Connecticut Gardener’s APLDCT Designer Forum

ConnGardener 4-5.2013 APLDCT’s latest Designer Forum for Connecticut Gardener magazine focuses on Fashioning Focal Points. From focal point fundamentals, to movable focal points and using focal points to tell a story, this month’s article helps readers figure out to make their gardens more compelling.

Through our partnership with Connecticut Gardener, three members of the Connecticut chapter of APLD, all professional landscape designers, offer their take on the same topic, allowing readers to gain a small insight into the garden design process.

Upcoming topics for the Designer Forum include Tips for Rejuvenating Foundation Plantings, Groundcovers for Connecticut Gardens and Reducing Your Use of Chemical Fertilizers .
