APLDWA Nitty Gritty Garden TourFriday, July 22, 2016, 10:00am-6:00pm
Location: Queen Anne and Magnolia Neighborhoods
TOUR IS FULL - REGISTRATION FOR WAITING LIST IS AVAILABLE BELOW
Members + one guest: $45 per person; Non-members $60
Includes lunch and happy hour
Join us for an exclusive behind the scenes tour of Seattle gardens designed by fellow APLDWA members.
Focusing on gardens in the Queen Anne and Magnolia neighborhoods, tours of 8 private gardens and 1 public space will be led by the gardens’ designers who will discuss project goals, inspirations, challenges, resources and more. Learn first-hand what makes these gardens work and how you can apply the same wisdom. Garden designers include Kat King & Tim King, PLA, Daniel Lowery, APLD, Leanne Goulding, Susie Thompson, APLD, and Lisa Port, APLD.
This tour will be fun and inspiring, and it will also be packed with nitty gritty details that you can use for your own design or installation projects. We’ll see gardens with a wide range of styles, client needs, and site conditions. Garden maturity will range from under construction to decades old. Issues creatively addressed and problems beautifully solved include elder accessibility, privacy, stormwater, steep slopes, food production (including fresh eggs), lack of flow (both visual and pedestrian), limited irrigation, al fresco cooking and dining, small spaces, and more. If you’re curious about how to deal with any of these issues, then this is the tour for you!
We’ll break for lunch midway in a private room at The 5-Spot. At the end of the day we’ll share a toast to all the beauty and talent of our membership with a happy hour in Tim & Kat King’s home garden.
If you have any questions please contact Kelly Carter Mortimer at firstname.lastname@example.org. After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email containing the lunch menu choices, please respond to that email promptly. After registration closes we’ll contact you to facilitate carpooling.
