Gardening with Ornamantal Grasses
Lucy Dinsmore
Horticulturist, Morris Arboretum

Grasses add texture, movement, color, screening, seasonal interest, environmental benefits, and so much more to the garden. They are also beautiful and underutilized. We will discuss how and where to use them, along with their grass-like cousins - from sun to shade, dry to wet, and other situations. This class will start with a presentation indoors and end with a walking tour of the ornamental grasses planted throughout the Arboretum. Please dress appropriately for walking outdoors.

Site Assessment for Better Gardens and Landscapes
Charles P. Mazza
Former Horticulture Educator, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Cornell Cooperative Extension

Landscaping doesn’t start with design. It starts by carefully observing, measuring, calculating, and testing to discover the characteristics of your property. Factoring in the results of those discoveries leads to a more sustainable landscape where plantings match the site’s characteristics. Learn how to conduct a step-by-step evaluation or assessment of the site. This class is ideal for new home owners or those planning to expand a landscape into new areas of their property, whether they are experienced gardeners or novices. Included in the class is the helpful reference book Site Assessment for Better Gardens and Landscapes, written by the class instructor. Class time is devoted to understanding and resolving issues that can be challenging in a landscape, as well as indoor and outdoor hands-on activities designed to help you with the assessment process.
