Atlanta’s own landscape design firm Dargan Landscape Architects wants to help you create a summer garden that is designed to last a lifetime, according to a conversation between the Atlanta Pop Culture Examiner and Mary Palmer Dargan on Monday, April 29. And to do that it will take at least three days of workshops with two seasoned experts, as well as the behind-the-scene tours of 12 homes that have already benefited from the knowledge and skills of the professional licensed landscapers.
Participants will not only get to “throw open the garden gates to some beautiful and very private sanctuaries”–which they never could enter otherwise–but they will also have the chance at a coveted garden makeover during one day’s session. But that’s not all, as a wealth of information will be imparted during the “Landscape Your Life” event that took the event leaders decades to learn.
Some of that information has to do with creating landscapes that use less water, which can be a real issue for some homeowners, as the Denton Record-Chronicle points out. And some information has to do with being a wise steward when it comes to using what nature has already provided–or being careful not to cause soil erosion when making landscape improvements.
Mary Dargan, one of the co-principals in the Buckhead design firm presenting the upcoming June event, says she is partnering with her ASLA landscape architect husband, Hugh Dargan, in order to create this unique opportunity for interested individuals who want to design their own landscapes themselves, rather than hire someone else, but need the knowledge to do it correctly, so money and time aren’t wasted.
And likely there are many individuals who have been trying and failing at getting their landscapes the way they want them for quite some time, without success. So now’s your chance to change all that while taking in some beautiful landscapes already completed–and while the expert couple is willing to spend their time teaching others for only $397 per person.
It’s even less expensive to attend if you come as a couple (or bring a friend), since the second person pays just $347 for the three-day extravaganza being touted as the “Mountain Chic Landscape Design.”
Prospective designer wannabes will visit the homes of others who paid much more handsomely for the chance to have the dynamic duo transform their properties into utopias for them. But this opportunity will enable new fans to see why the Dargans have such a loyal following.
And workshop attendees will also be able to tell their friends that they attended informative lectures, activities and garden design projects lead by the couple whose works have been seen on HGTV and the pages of some of the most affluent magazines in print (think Architectural Digest).
Yet the best part about this opportunity is that not only will participants enjoy beautiful and breathtaking scenery and landscapes designed by true experts in the field; they will also gain a lot of the knowledge it takes to do it for themselves for a pittance of the cost they would pay a licensed landscaper with qualifications like the Dargans.
Both architects can honestly boast expert knowledge and experience when it comes to transforming the simplest home or the most luxurious abode’s landscape into heavenly places of refuge and serenity. And isn’t that what every homeowner really wants?
