    Designing Your Landscape with Roses

    by Marjorie Forster, VP Programs

Is your landscape in need of a face-lift after the floods, but you just donít know where to start? Have you poured money into landscaping projects and then been unsatisfied with the result? Do you have a new home and are in need of developing a landscape plan? If so, this presentation is for you! The approach that you will learn combines techniques used by professional landscape designers with the latest horticultural landscape management practices to provide a beautiful year-round landscape requiring only minimal maintenance. We will cover how to create your own design, plant and color selections and, of course, a recommended list of roses.

Gaye Hammond is Past President of the Houston Rose Society, a leading spokesperson for the Earth-Kind Research Program, a contributing editor to the American Rose, the American Rose Society member magazine and a speaker across the United States.
