Consider the performance of your home landscape. Would you describe it as a fit, functional work of art that reflects your lifestyle and encourages outdoor activity? If not, join Raleigh-based landscape designer Preston Montague at the JCRA for a design course series that will help you revise and reboot your outdoor space.

Hydrangea quercifolia 'Little Honey'

Landscape Potential V will introduce participants to plant species and cultivars that are effective in small, tight gardens. This exciting two-part course begins with a presentation on foolproof plants popularly used by landscape designers on projects where space is a premium. Following the introduction class is a practicum in which participants individually bring in photos and maps of their property for a one-on-one consultation with Preston to work out any problems they may be facing or to work in tandem on a design.

By the end of the two-part course, participants will have not only been introduced to a plant palette for small spaces, but will also have personalized professional advice for developing the potential of their home's most dynamic room.


Individual, one-hour sessions with Preston are available on August 7, 13, and 14 from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm. To ensure date and time availability, please contact Chris Glenn at (919) 5213-7005 or prior to registering online.
