The Entry Courtyard Garden

May 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Speaker: Tom Stangfeld

Your front yard is the first room your guests enter. Unfortunately, most landscapes are designed to hide an ugly concrete foundation, even if it doesn’t exist. This presentation will show you some history, theory and design of the residential landscape, with examples of the good and the not so good. The goal is to help you design the ‘outside’ of your home in the same way you design the ‘inside’. Spaces to enjoy and live in are much more than just lawn to mow and shrubs to shear.

Tom Strangfeld is a landscape architect who has practiced in and around Boston since 1976. He has taught and lectured at many institutions from the Arnold Arboretum to Tower Hill. Tom has also planted trees in the Boston Public Garden and appeared on the PBS series “This Old House.”

Social and Business Meeting: 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.
