March 2023 Panel Discussion Meeting With The APLD
March 2023 was our first ever “Garden Design Month” and what a month it was!
On Monday, March 13, the SDHS enjoyed an in-person panel discussion about the many benefits of good landscape design. Whether one is a landscaping do-it-yourself homeowner or looking to hire a landscape designer, the discussion featuring six Association of Professional Landscape Designers was full of design and garden information that was interesting and useful to all. Topics covered were about everything pertaining to gardening in our San Diego area; sustainability, water conservation, putting the right plants in the right spots, style, problem solving and troubleshooting existing plantings and more.

What a wonderful way for members to learn about what goes into a well designed landscape from the qualified designers themselves and then be able to see these techniques and designs actually installed and growing in the real gardens featured just a few weeks later on our Spring Garden Tour.
