The Franklin County Master Gardeners offer our “Landscape Design and Plant Selection” series of classes starting on October 5th and running for 7 weeks, Tuesday (and one Wednesday) evenings from 7-9 PM at the Extension Office and Ag Heritage Building, 185 Franklin Farm Lane in Chambersburg.

“Landscape Design” participants will learn how to create their own personal landscape plan. The goal is for students to analyze their site and develop on paper a landscape design for the property, whether a new or existing home site. The series will end with a review of the participant’s design plan with an experienced Master Gardener. the individual classes and schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, October 5: Planning, whether a new property or old: basic tools & principles
Tuesday, October 12: An Artist’s View of the landscape: what your property will look like in ten years.
Tuesday, October 19: Choosing the Right Trees for your landscape
