Color in the Garden: Thu Aug 25, 6-8pm (Members)
Color is one of the most powerful tools in garden design. Use it properly and you can create a multitude of effects, from tranquility and serenity to a riotous feast for the eyes. Effective garden designs don’t occur by random plantings; they are the results of inspiration combined with knowledge of color. Do you know most of our knowledge and use of color is based on paint and printing? Would it surprise you to learn that color in the garden is based on visual color which differs from the artist’s palette? This is a technical presentation where Director Ed Lyon will explain why color may not be as it seems. You’ll go home having learned how to assess a garden for color design, how light, texture, and point of view effect color, and what makes beautiful color combinations.

Faded Glory: The Autumn Garden : Wed Sep 28, 6-8pm (Members)
A recent trend in garden design has been interest in the “Autumn Garden”. This is partly because the floral displays we plant in the Midwest for stunning spring and summer effect fade and wither away at the first kiss of frost. Our yards then become useless as extensions of our home with no visual interest through our long winter season. Neither autumn nor winter needs to be dreary and there are more ways to punch it up with more than mums. Reiman Gardens’ Director Ed Lyon will demonstrate plant materials that not only define and create a spectacular fall garden, but will extend winter interest as well. If your autumn garden has the drabs, find out how to jazz it up!
